Leaving uni after second semester

I study russian and politics at Leeds uni. I'm in ny second semester. And next year is my abroad year. I wanted to ask whether I could not continue this academic year and restart the year in September?
I think you could if it’s for a different course I’d ask your tutor.

What about for mental health? I just need to take some time off for myself

You should be able to suspend your studies. Talk to student support/wellbeing at your uni to explore your options.
Hi there,

Taking a break from university is definitely possible as you can either defer or repeat a term.

However, it would be best if you reached out to your course director or student services as each university might have a different process when it goes to submitting a letter explaining your need to take a break from your studies to focus on your well-being.

I am glad to hear that you are considering your option as you should most definitely prioritise your mental health. University can wait.

I hope I managed to help!

Best of luck,
