Taking a break from study
If you are considering a break from study on mental health grounds, you need to talk to your College student support team.
At Durham, a break from study is called a concession; your College will usually apply for a concession on your behalf. If authorised, you will then receive a concession letter from your Faculty which outlines the terms of the concession. The letter will contain information about the requirements for your return to study, including a deadline for the submission of documents.
