I have a disability and I can’t meet my coursework deadline, can I get an extension?


Answer

Eligibility for extensions is an evidence-based process. Decisions are based upon medical evidence or recommendations in Educational Psychologist or Needs Assessment Reports.  If you have met with a Disability Adviser to complete a Reasonable Adjustment Plan (RAP) this Plan will indicate if you are eligible for an extension. If the RAP does not make a recommendation or recommends a temporary extension or an extension on demand contact Disability & Learner Support to request an extension.  If you have not met with a Disability Adviser yet please contact Disability & Learner Support to discuss with an Adviser the reason for the extension ,the type of evidence required and to arrange an appointment to explore whether other support may be available. Our Disability Advisers can be contacted on 0161 295 0023 (option 1 and option 2).
