• The University wants you to do your best. However we know that sometimes events happen which mean
that you can’t submit your coursework by the deadline – these events should be beyond your control and
not easy to predict. If this happens, you can apply for an extension to your deadline for up to two weeks,
or if you need longer, you can apply for a deferral, which takes you to the next assessment period (for
example, to the resit period following the main Assessment Boards). You must apply before the deadline.
