The Campus-wide Policy on Academic Leave applies to the Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences program. As per this policy, students in good academic standing may take an academic leave of up to one academic year. Students choosing to go on Academic Leave are required to inform the Faculty’s Office of Student Services of their intention.
When considering an Academic Leave, students should be mindful that the maximum time allowed for the completion of the program is eight (8) years from first admission to the program. Also, program changes may occur during the leave.
Academic Leave is not an opportunity to complete credits towards the UBC B.P.Sc. degree at another institution. Students who interrupt their UBC studies to take courses elsewhere, and who wish to apply this credit towards their degree, must first apply for a Letter of Permission through the Faculty’s Office of Student Services.
All students are responsible for their registration. Registering in courses and neglecting or choosing not to complete them is not considered Academic Leave. Students who cease to attend or otherwise fail to complete exams, assignments, or other course requirements, and who have not received approval for a late withdrawal, will receive a grade reflecting requirements completed in the course.
