The School defines an Extension as any postponement of an assessment deadline in cases where the student can cite proven mitigating circumstances.
With respect to modules within the School of Creative Arts only, a Short-Term Extension may be granted by your tutor and does not require ratification by the School’s Assessment Panel / Board of Examiners. In such cases, you may be asked to provide evidence to support your request, and you will be asked to complete the ‘Short Term Extension Form’ available from the Student Office in the Todd Building or downloadable here.
Tutors in Creative Arts may permit a maximum extension of 10 (TEN) working days*, provided that appropriate evidence has been seen. Please note that this is the MAXIMUM permitted extension-period and in many cases a shorter period of extension may be appropriate.
The use of this form will extend the standard deadline for submission of work for the named student, module and assignment. Should the student fail to submit on the agreed extended date, then the University’s standard regulations concerning late work will be applied – using the date of the extended deadline as a reference. Ie. work submitted within 1 week of the extended deadline will be capped at 40 for undergraduate and 50 for postgraduate students, work submitted after 1 week of the extended deadline will receive a mark of 0).
Students wishing to request an extension period greater than that stated above are required to submit their request using the full Serious Adverse Circumstances Form available from the Student Office in the Todd Building or downloadable here.
