Withdrawal will not be processed until after result release - Withdrawal will only take effect from the following semester. This should be done at least three months before the expiry of the maximum candidature. Credit will be given for the work done towards the Master's degree.
Generally, research students should have already submitted a satisfactory first draft of the thesis to the supervisor before the request for conversion from full-time to part-time candidature can be approved.
For those on MOE-subsidised programmes and are successful in gaining readmission, they will be subjected to the eligibility guidelines for MOE subsidy. Please note that students who leave the University after the second instructional week of a semester are liable to pay fees for the whole semester.
Students who have been dismissed and would like to return to the same programme of study generally will have to apply for readmission and be subjected to the prevailing tuition fee rate and policy. Students who are ineligible for fee subsidy are also not eligible for some scholarships. A letter confirming the withdrawal from the University will be sent to student within three weeks after submission of the form.
