Postgraduate project and dissertation extensions

In the case of modules formally designated as postgraduate project or dissertation modules, students may make a request for an extension to the submission date of the project or dissertation. Such requests should be addressed to the Head of Department responsible for the module before the original submission date and must be made using the appropriate form and detailing the exceptional circumstances which you wish to be taken into account. The Head of Department will normally inform you of the outcome of such an extension request within ten working days of the receipt of the request.

If such a request is granted, you may make one more request for an extension to the revised submission date. Such requests should be addressed to the Head of Department responsible for the module, before the revised submission date and must be made using the appropriate form and detailing the exceptional circumstances which you wish to be taken into account. The Head of Department will inform you of the outcome of such an extension request within ten working days of the receipt of the request.
