This article will explain where you can go for advice if you are considering leaving university.

Don't worry! It's not uncommon to feel that you want to change or leave your course. There are a number of reasons why you might feel like this and it's worth going over your thoughts to be sure that you make the right decision.

Whatever your reasons, talking them through with someone else can be very helpful. One option would be to speak to a careers adviser at the University of Portsmouth’s employability service, Purple Door, who will help you talk through your reasons and explain the key factors that you will need to consider before making a decision.

How can I book an appointment?

You can either drop-in or call us on +44 (0) 23 9284 2684; if you can’t get to Purple Door you can request a telephone appointment.

If at all possible, try and resist the temptation to stop attending lectures and handing coursework in. At some stage you will require a reference from your personal tutor and maintaining your workload demonstrates your motivation towards continuing in Higher Education.

For full details of the University of Portsmouth’s policy regarding ‘Transfer’, ‘Suspension’ or ‘Withdrawal’ please see this article.
