The School defines an extension as any postponement of an assessment deadline in cases where their are genuine exceptional circumstances.
Tutors in Creative Arts 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.
In order to request an extension, a student must complete the School’s Short-Term Extension form, downloadable here: CA Short Term Extension Form 2022 23 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. However, 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.
(Please note, the above link may not work in Chrome. Students are advised to use an alternative browser if they are unable to access the form at this link.)
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.
