Associate Student Status is only available to students who were previously registered with the University for the year after a withdrawal from study, and who wish to retain access to library and computing facilities.  As such it is popular with students who are taking resit exams whilst withdrawn from study.

What are the benefits of Associate Student status?
Associate students retain an ID card. They also retain their access to the Library and associated borrowing rights, and also to the University’s computing facilities.

Associate students can also request subject-specific support from academic staff and access to student support/welfare facilities, including support from the Student Learning Service.

Please note:

  • Associate Students are not considered to be registered students and are not entitled to receive a student loan or exemption from Council Tax
  • You are not eligible to apply for Associate Student status if you have an outstanding debt to the University
