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 your Programme Leader or downloadable here: CA Short Term Extension Form 2020-21.
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.
Except where there are locally agreed exceptions, an extension can only be requested up until two working days before the original coursework deadline.
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.
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 downloadable here.
