We understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in this becoming a difficult and uncertain time for people at university.
Extensions & Extenuating circumstances
In response to recent events, requirements for evidence levels around extensions and ECs are being adjusted. This short term guidance is in line with sector changes across all institutions.
Students should follow the standard process for applying for Extenuating circumstances and normal extension processes should be followed by students through their School.
If you are an international or EU student and are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of Covid-19, we can help. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org We have specialist advisers available and the University has some limited funds that maybe available during this unprecedented period.
This may be taking effect on your mental health and wellbeing, but there are lots of things that you can try to help you during such times.
At the Student Wellbeing Centre, we have collated a number of useful resources to advise and support you with this:
