A coursework extension is permission to hand in an assessment after the published deadline without either incurring a penalty or waiting to re-take an alternative assessment as a referred or deferred student. A physical or digital copy of this form should be retained by the student and tutor.
Coursework extensions are not automatic, permission must be granted.
Tutors in Creative Arts and Humanities may permit a maximum extension of 7 (seven) calendar days. Please note that this is the maximum permitted extension period and in many cases a shorter period of extension may be appropriate. Students with a Study Needs Agreement (SNA) are entitled to a maximum of Ten (10) calendar days.
In order to request an extension, a student must complete the School’s Short-Term Extension form, downloadable here: CTA Short Term Coursework Extension Form 2023 24 and submit it to their tutor prior to the original assignment submission deadline. There is no requirement to provide documentary evidence in support of the request and the extension does not require ratification by the Board of Examiners. The reason(s) for requesting the extension must be stated clearly in the submitted form and the student should specify the requested number of additional days up to the maximum of seven (7) calendar days and up to a maximum of ten (10) days for students with a Study Needs Agreement (SNA).

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 for the agreed extended deadline, then the University’s standard regulations concerning late work will be applied, using the date of the extended deadline as a reference.
Students needing an extension period greater than that stated above should request a deferral through the submission of an Exceptional Circumstances application.
