Intermission

During the course of your studies you may find that you are unable to continue because of a health condition (physical or mental), disability-related issues, bereavement, financial reasons, or another serious reason.  In these circumstances, you can apply for permission to take time out of your studies by intermitting (or disregarding terms in undergraduate language).

In the first instance students must contact their College Tutor to discuss their situation and the possibility of applying for intermission.

 

Purpose of Intermission

The purpose of intermission is to allow you the necessary time and distance away your studies to seek any necessary support, recuperate (in the case of ill health) or overcome any difficulties resulting from grave circumstances, and to alleviate any academic disadvantage caused to you as a result of ill health or other grave cause.

Undergraduates: What to do

You must contact your Tutor to discuss your situation and the implications of intermitting, as they will need to apply on your behalf to the University for permission to take time out or ‘disregard terms’ in University language. You may also wish to consult the Students’ Unions’ Advice Service.

Undergraduate students applying to intermit should contact Birgit Lintner in the Finance team to ask about changes to their UCF and to let her know you have applied to intermit.

If you live in College accommodation it is especially important to notify the Accommodation Manager as soon as you know your likely departure date. You should not delay such notification until formal approval of your application. In this instance only, the normal notice period will be waived and charges will cease on the date of notified departure. Where an intermitting student does not inform the Accommodation Manager of their application and departure date prior to actual departure, the normal notice period and associated charges will be invoked. This charge will not entitle the Licensee to residency during the notice period.”

Postgraduates: What to do

You must contact your Tutor to discuss your situation and the implications of intermitting. You can apply for intermission via your CamSIS self-service. Information on how to do this is available on the ‘Applying for a change in your student status’ page.

Postgraduate students applying to intermit should contact Katarina Gargaroni in the Finance Office to ask about changes to your UCF and to let her know you have applied to intermit.

During Intermission: College engagement

During Intermission you should not use College facilities during intermission, nor engage in social activities within College, without the express permission of the College. If you have been approved for intermission and you live in College Accommodation it is especially important to notify the Accommodation Manager.
