    Hi
    I am considering self-rusticating. I just wanted to know what people thought of the experience/ how to go about accessing information about it? It seems like a topic which is hard to gain much information on? Everything I've read has been about disciplinary action. Anything would be a massive help!

    Thank-you!

    You've several options worth considering.

    i. Your college should have student welfare reps who can provide informal advice and put you in contact with students who are on (or have recently returned from) suspension.

    ii. OUSU has a professional, free independent advice service:
    http://ousu.org/advice/student-advice-service/

    iii. Your college student handbook will contain information about applying to suspend so you should dig it out and read the relevant section.

    To apply to suspend, you should contact a member of the college's welfare team - the chaplain or senior tutor. If the suspension is health-related, you will usualy need a medical note from a college doctor and the academic tutors will also be asked to comment on your progress, so be aware of this.

    All cases are different and you don't say whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate. There are pros and cons to suspending so think through what is best for you and take advantage of the advice available. If the tutors feel you are making progress, there is a summer vacation coming up and you may want to see if the situation improves between now and October, particularly if new treatments are available. Continuation with support and reasonable adjustments to study is an alternative.

    It is exam term at the moment and if your difficulties are linked to anxiety over exams, then we would also suggest seeking advice and support to assist with this. Most staircases have notices with a list of welfare options within college and the University - if you approach anyone listed, they should be able to refer you to specialist support in this area.
