    I would advise that you seek careers advice from the Placement and Careers Service as if you know what career you would like this may give you the focus to complete the degree. Or, they could suggest alternative routes for you. To withdraw you need to speak with your programme administrator in the first instance but ultimatley and email to your Academic Administrator Manager saying you wish to leave would do the trick. There are financial consequences to withdrawing and as such I advise you call Student Finance England, if they support you, and seek advice from them before withdrawing. Courses traditionally start in late Sept/Oct so if you wanted to do another course you would have to apply again. You should also consider any financial obligations you have such as housing contracts. SUBU Advice can talk you through all of this if you wish to give us a call or drop in and see us.

    I'm sorry to hear you wish to leave BU. I would advise you speak to your programme administrator and/or programme leader. SUB Advice can talk through the financial implications with you and ensure you have considered the consequences of leaving BU so you can make an informed decision. Placement and Careers office in The Edge may also be useful to you as they can provide careers advice.

    Thanks for the question. Your registration as a student is the key issue here - and that expires, assuming you pass all units without the need to resit, on the publication date of your final transcript. There may be other ways to bridge any financial gap in the intervening period - contact us on subuadvice@bournemouth.ac.uk at that time, and we'll see what we can find for you.

    Thanks for your question - you're certainly not the only student to have concerns like this. I'd always recommend that you try to set up a meeting with your tutor, to discuss your concerns - there may be simple steps that either of you can take to improve the situation. Failing that, you could talk to your Course Rep (check out www.subu.org.uk/content/747303/) - Reps can be very useful as a less direct way of handling difficult issues. Another alternative would be to have a chat with BU Chaplaincy (http://studentportal.bournemouth.ac.uk/health/chaplaincy/index.html) - they can offer some excellent advice on dealing with conflict issues and may even, if your tutor agrees, be able to offer a mediation service.
