Special Circumstances

There are many factors which can have an impact on your academic performance. If you feel that something beyond your control is having a negative effect on your studies, you should talk to your Personal Tutor, Supervisor or Student Support team about submitting an application for Special Circumstances.

These pages tell you what you should do if your academic performance has been affected by illness, accident or circumstances beyond your control. We advise you of your responsibilities as students and what evidence you need to supply.

The University is committed to supporting you during your studies.
