Student Administration

Special circumstances deadlines

Find out your School deadline for submitting your application.

Deadlines

  • If you are applying for special circumstances please make sure you apply no later than seven days after your final deadline of the semester;
  • Some Schools have a set deadline that applies to all courses. We have listed these deadlines below and will update the tables as we receive them from Schools;
  • When checking the deadline, please check by your School rather than by courses you want to apply for;
  • Please note that UG/PG deadlines may differ. 

Late Applications

  • Your application must include an explanation of why you could not submit your application on time.
  • Along with the evidence that supports the extenuating circumstances impacting your assessment(s), you must also provide evidence that validates the reason of your application being late.
  • Unless there is an exceptional and evidenced reason of why an application was submitted past the deadline, it will not be accepted.

Retrospective Applications

  • Retrospective applications will not be considered (this is when you want to apply after the final deadline for SC applications being accepted as set out in the policy and the key dates).
  • Please seek further support and information about available options with your Student Support Office and the Advice Place.

Expedited Decisions

  • If you would like your School to consider an expedited decision on your application (a decision that is made before the relevant Board of Examiners meeting), please contact your Student Support Office before submitting your application.
