We recognise that there may be times when you are unable to meet the submission deadline for your work due to difficulties beyond your control e.g. personal illness or personal difficulties. If you find yourself in such a position you can make a claim for exceptional circumstances.
If you are studying either on campus, by distance learning or at one of our UK partnership organisations you can access the exceptional circumstances form via My Student Information and Support > Exceptional Circumstances > Create a new claim and view previous claims in your e:VisionStaffs Portal.
If you have any questions or experience difficulty in completing the Exceptional Circumstances form please seek advice from your personal tutor, the Student Connect Team at Stoke or the Information Points at Stafford or Shrewsbury, the Students' Union Advice Centre or your Money & Guidance Advisors who are there to provide specialist information, as well as confidential, impartial advice.
Please refer to the Exceptional Circumstances Procedure.
The following are commonly accepted grounds for exceptional circumstances:
*Please note you will need to provide evidence from your GP or the Accessability Team to confirm that you experienced a worsening of your disability or ongoing condition, leading up to, or at the time of your assessment.
When you’re completing assessments for your course, you have to provide evidence that is of a good quality, and usually needs to have been written by an expert on the subject. We expect the same when you need to provide us with evidence to support your EC claim. The Unviersity has a guide for students on the type of evidence we expect to see.
