I have been experiencing personal problems that have been affecting my work, what should I do?
If you feel that extenuating circumstances outside of your academic study are affecting your ability to get work in or attend taught sessions then you should inform your programme. You need to complete an Extenuating Circumstances Request form and submit it with supporting evidence. The form and policy can be found HERE this explains what circumstances are usually considered as extenuating circumstances and how the programme will treat this information. An Extenuating Circumstances Request form allows the University to take into consideration your personal circumstances when assessing your work; this may allow them to be more thoughtful of your circumstances or more lenient with possible resubmissions.
