Deferring your studies at UWA
If you wish to take a semester or more off from your studies, you need to apply for Approved Leave. You can apply for up to 12 months of Approved Leave at a time online via studentConnect.
To apply for Approved Leave:
- Logon to studentConnect using your UWA Student ID Number and Pheme password
- In the left hand menu under 'ENROLMENT' select 'Discontinuation & Approved Leave' and follow the prompts
For further information on Approved Leave (including eligibility and application deadlines) visit the Approved Leave web page on the Current Students' website.
For advice on how Approved Leave may affect your course progress and enrolment contact your Student Advising Office or Email Us.
Note: students in the first semester of their undergraduate bachelor degree are not eligible to apply for Approved Leave.
