Below is some information on common academic queries to get you started:

 

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. Please feel free to contact the Student Advice Co-ordinator for advice on completing the form.

The University introduced a Fit to Sit Policy in the 2016/17 term. This means that "if you undertake an assessment then you are declaring yourself well enough to do so". If you feel your ability to complete a piece of coursework or sit an exam is being affected by personal circumstances, you may wish to defer the assessment to a later date by making a deferral request. The form required for making a deferral Request, and a copy of the Fit to Sit Policy, can be found here.

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. Please feel free to contact the Student Advice Co-ordinator or your Course Leader/Head of School for advice on completing the form.
