Change of circumstances

Girl _lectureYou put a great deal of thought into which course to apply for, you get the grades you need to start your preferred course, and you arrive at university ready to go.  From there, in the vast majority of cases, you’ll find that your course exceeds your expectations and you have a great time during your studies.

Sometimes, however, a person’s circumstances can change.  For example, you might find you need to talk to someone about possibly changing from one course to another, taking some time out away from your course or leaving your course early. Should you ever find yourself in a situation like this at Northumbria, we are here to support you.

If your circumstances change after you start your course, your Student Success Team is here to help you access support that would be helpful to you, and enable you to make an informed choice about what to do next.
