Special circumstances explained

Here you can find a detailed explanation of what a special circumstance is and if your situation qualifies you to apply for one.

The University is committed to supporting you during your studies. If there is a situation beyond your control that you feel may have an adverse impact on your academic performance, you can apply for a coursework extension and/or for special circumstances.

Before applying for support, we recommend that you discuss your situation with your Student Support Team or your Personal Tutor in your school. They will be able to advise you on your individual situation and help you access any additional support if necessary and can also talk you through the process of submitting an application.
