January 2023- New Online Extenuating circumstances System
In response to student feedback about extenuating circumstances (ECs) the University has been working on the development of a single digital solution for ECs which aims to provide a consistent experience for all our students.
The University is launching a series of pilots in semester 2 to ensure the new process meets students’ needs and this email is to inform you that your programme is included in the pilot which starts today. Please note, for those on the foundation year please continue to liaise with The College, you will not be required to use this new system.
For information on the new process and how to submit an EC request, please click on the links provided below.
