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 may need to complete an Extenuating Circumstances Request and submit it if necessary. The relevant forms and policy can be found HERE this explains what circumstances are usually considered as extenuating circumstances and how the programme will treat this information.
You can access long term support if you feel you need a longer extension through a Temporary Learning Agreement (TLA) Speak to your programme team about this.
