Forms for students studying an award-bearing programme:

Short-term Extension Request Form 

If you are unable to submit your assignment by the submission deadline you can request an extension by completing the Short-term Extension Request Form. You may request a 7 day self-certified extension, or a longer extension (of 2 or 3 weeks) which will require the submission of documentary evidence (e.g. a doctor’s note or letter from your employer). Please ensure you submit your extension request before your submission deadline.

Intermission Request Form
In cases of particular and unforeseen difficulty, such as serious illness of a student or a close family member, or an unexpected change in personal circumstances, you may request to intermit, i.e. to return at a later date to complete your studies.

Mitigating Circumstances Form
If you encounter significant difficulties that substantially affect your achievement, result in late submission, or cause you to miss classes, you should complete this form and submit any relevant documentary evidence (e.g. a doctor’s note). 

Research Ethics Approval Form
If your research project involves the collection of primary data (e.g. interview, ethnographic observation, experiment), your Supervisor will ask you to complete this form.
