Leave of Absence

Students who wish to apply for leave of absence on medical ground have to write to the Faculty of Science Office together with a certificate signed by a registered medical practitioner. Students applying for leave of absence for non-medical reasons should also write to the Faculty of Science Office at the earliest opportunity stating the reasons for which the leave of absence is sought (University General Regulation G8 refers).

The period of leave of absence is to be counted within the maximum period of registration. The maximum period of registration is 5 years for 3-year curriculum, and 6 years for 4-year curriculum.
