Readmission Policy

Readmission Policy

All students who wish to ask for readmission to their degree in the College of Arts should contact arts-advising@glasgow.ac.uk for a readmission form.

Any student who previously withdrew on grounds of ill health will be asked to provide a medical letter attesting to their fitness to study as part of the readmission procedure. Requests for readmission along with all relevant evidence should be received by 31 August in the year the students wishes to return.

A student whose academic progress in their degree has been satisfactory and whose return will enable them to complete their degree within the normal period from first registration specified in the regulations will automatically be allowed readmission.

If a student requires a repeat year of study as part of their readmission, then the normal policy regarding repeat years is applied.

Please note the relevant section from the University Calendar regarding the maximum period of study which follows. The expectation is that the maximum period of study is calculated in consecutive years.
