Withdraw from candidature

A candidate may withdraw from a course at any time in a semester during their course of study.

Students may withdraw without academic and financial penalty only if notice of withdrawal is submitted in writing to the Registrar by 4.00 pm on the census date.

Term Start Date End Date Census Date Save to Calendar
Semester 1 Monday, 31 January 2022 Friday, 24 June 2022 Thursday, 31 March 2022

Withdraw before the census date

If withdrawal occurs in writing up to 4.00 pm on the census date the tuition fee will be refunded in full.  A written request to the Registrar in the case of exceptional circumstances (see below) may waive the withdrawal fee. The refund will be paid to the student within four weeks of the date of withdrawal.

Withdraw after the census date

If a student withdraws after the census date of the unit (for students enrolled in units for the DMin program) a fail grade will be given. For students not enrolled in units the semester will count towards the period of candidature.  Tuition fees will not be refunded. If there are exceptional circumstances around this withdrawal a written request needs to be sent to the Registrar seeking a refund and detailing the exceptional circumstances. A full or pro-rata refund may be made in such cases.

A written request for withdrawal due to exceptional circumstances may be accepted as grounds for a total or partial refund of fees subject to the student providing acceptable documentary evidence in support of their claim. Exceptional circumstances may include:

  • Inability to obtain a student visa
  • Illness or disability
  • Failure to meet English language requirements for admission
  • Death of the student or a close family member (parent, sibling, spouse, child)
