Information correct as of April 2021. You are advised to contact the Students’ Union Advice Service for advice specific to your circumstances before taking any action. If you find any broken links please let us know as links may change without us being notified.
An extension should be requested when you need just a few more days to meet your deadline, for deferral to the next assessment opportunity, see Mitigation.
In most cases you will work towards your assessment deadlines without any problems. However, there are times when circumstances arise beyond your control that affect you and your ability to study.
In normal circumstances the University expects you to submit all assignments on time and in doing so assumes that you are declaring yourself fit to do so.
To be granted an extension you will need to demonstrate that circumstances beyond your control have affected your Academic study.
In addition, you will be expected to explain the direct link between the circumstances you describe and the impact on your ability to meet your deadline.

Your form will sent through to your Course Administration team for consideration by the designated member of Academic Staff within the School.
The Students’ Union Advice Service can check your statement to provide feedback.
We will aim to get back to you with feedback normally within 24hrs on a working day. Make sure you send any drafts to us for feedback well in advance of your deadline.
