Academic

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 there has been more recent guidance on RGU academic processes and procedures published. Please visit RGU Coronavirus Guidance for the more up-to-date information.

If you are experiencing something in your personal or academic life, or you are experiencing an issue alongside your classmates that significantly affects your academic studies, contact RGU:Union Advice & Support for assistance. Navigate through the advice & support sections to find appropriate guidance or contact us now with the links below.

If you require advice on the submission of a Deferral Request, Coursework Extension Request or a Suspension of Studies Request, read the information below and contact RGU:Union Advice & Support for further assistance.

  • Coursework Extension Requests

    If personal circumstances are affecting your ability to complete a piece of coursework by the required deadline, it may be possible to get longer to complete the work by requesting an extension. The form you need to do so can be found here. Contact the RGU:Union Advice & Support for advice on the completion of the form.

  • Deferral Requests

    The University has a Fit to Sit Policy which means that by undertaking an assessment, you are declaring yourself well enough to do so. In the instance you feel your ability to undertake an assessment is being affected by personal circumstances, you may wish to defer the assessment to a later date by submitting a deferral request. The form you need to do so can be found here. Contact the RGU:Union Advice & Support for advice on the completion of the form.

  • Suspension of Studies

    If you require time out from your studies (usually up to one year), it may be possible to request a suspension of studies. The form you need to do so can be found here. Contact the RGU:Union Advice & Support or your Course Leader for advice on the completion of the form.
