Students with Support Plans have access to coursework extensions

Students with Support Plans have access to coursework extensions

Coursework extensions

If you have a Support Plan, we recognise that you may need an extension to coursework deadlines and this is detailed in your plan. Coursework extensions will be subject to review and approval by your School.


What you need to know

To request an extension you do not need to complete an Extenuating Circumstances form if you have a Support Plan. Instead, please complete a coursework extension request form and email it direct to your Student Service Centre at before the original deadline date. 


Your local Service Centre will forward it to the Assessments Team to review and approve the request. Please read the ‘Guidance notes’ prior to completing the form.


The coursework extension request form can only be used for one extension request per piece of work and you not need to include any supporting documentation.

If you have already been granted an extension on the basis of a Support Plan but your circumstances have changed, such that you would like to request a further extension to the already extended deadline, please follow the Extenuating Circumstances procedure.
