Extenuating Circumstances Regulations

There has been a significant change in the Extenuating Circumstances Regulations as 'LATE’ claims may now be considered in year – students no longer have to wait for the post exam board Academic Appeals Process.

If you experience circumstances that may affect your ability to perform in assessments you may be able to apply for Extenuating Circumstances. The key principle of these regulations is to provide equality for all students in relation to the assessments they are required to undertake during their course. The University aims to ensure that a student who has proven extenuating circumstances is not unfairly disadvantaged as a result; at the same time, students with extenuating circumstances will not be disproportionately advantaged over other students.

For copies of the Extenuating Circumstances Form and guidance please contact the Advice Zone at your campus or visit Advice Zone Online.
