Postgraduate taught students should note that although the taught element of your course may have finished, you are still studying full-time until your CAS end date. If you are studying in the UK, you are required to attend regular in person meetings with your supervisor. If you have approval to study remotely overseas, you are required to attend regular meetings via Zoom or Skype.
You are able to request, via your dissertation supervisor and department, a period of “study away” for some of the period following the completion of your taught classes and exams. You will be limited to 6 weeks as a maximum at any one time.
If you would like to complete your dissertation outside the UK and submit this remotely as a distance learner, you are required to seek authorisation from your dissertation supervisor and department.
If you choose to complete your studies from your home country, we are required to notify the Home Office and withdraw our immigration sponsorship. The Home Office will curtail (cut short) you Student immigration permission, usually within 60 days of the date we make our report, and you should receive notification of the amended expiry date from the Home Office by letter or email. You must ensure you leave the UK by the date your permission will expire and should not attempt to use your Student immigration permission to re-enter the UK as it will no longer be valid.
