Can I be forced to withdraw from a masters degree? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I suffer from chronic depression and have disability support from the university. My depressiob worsened over christmas and I missed my exams. The university accepted this and I will have the opportunity to sit, as first sitting in August.

    My medication was increased but the head if department was quite adament that I defer until next year. I cannot afford this.

    I am behind on my dissertation work (deadline is July) However I have met all my deadlines, have achieved high grades and have a high attendence record.

    I dislocated my shoulder at the beginning of April and this has put me further behind on my dissertation. Head of course wants to meet me to "discuss my situation". I am really anxious she will bully me to withdraw, causing my exam revision to suffer (4 exams in 2 weeks.)

    Can she exclude me fron the course? Even if my attendence and grades have been good?

    Any additional advice?

    Thank you...a very anxious mature student ...
