Extenuating Circumstances

We recognise that there may be times when you are unable to meet the submission deadline for your work due to circumstances beyond your control e.g. personal illness or personal difficulties. If you find yourself in such a position you can make a claim for extenuating circumstances.

If you are studying either on campus, by distance learning or at one of our UK partnership organisations you can access the extenuating circumstances form via the My Modules and Assessment tab in your e:VisionStaffs Portal.

If you have any questions or experience difficulty in completing the Extenuating Circumstances form please seek advice from your subject tutor, the Information Points, the Students' Union Advice Centre or your Student Guidance Advisors who are there to provide specialist information, as well as confidential, impartial advice.

Please refer to the Extenuating Circumstances Procedure.
