This guidance is for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students. There are many factors which can have an impact on a student's academic performance. If you feel that something beyond your control is having a negative effect on your studies, you should let us know.
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.
Documents and Guidance
Academic Services provides the University's Special Circumstances policy and the Special Circumstance form. If you are experiencing circumstances which are affecting your studies, please complete this form and return it to your Personal Tutor when you meet with them to discuss your situation.
