PGR Application for Approval to Submit After Agreed Submission Date Instructions:

To apply for permission for approval to submit after the agreed submission date you must:

1.   Applications should be made on the ‘Approval to Submit after Agreed Submission Date Instructions’
     form above.

2.   Where relevant applications must be accompanied by documentary evidence e.g. certification by a
     qualified doctor specifying nature of illness, duration and impact on ability to study, letter from
     qualified counsellor, copy police incident report etc.

3.   Applications must be made in advance of the published submission date.

4.   After completing the form, you should email/take the form directly to your supervisor/Programme
     Director and ask them to complete ‘Section 2 – Supervisor/Academic Programme Director’. Once they
     have completed section 2, you must then ensure that the completed form is returned to the School PGR
     Administrators (see below for details). Your application will then be passed to the Director of
     Graduate Studies for consideration.

5.   The student will be formally notified in writing of the outcome of their application as soon as possible
     by the School office.

Circumstances that might be considered as grounds for applying to submit late:
    Illness which either prevents the student from working altogether or considerably affects his/her
      ability to work effectively.
    Serious personal problems; illness/death of close relatives including attendance at funerals; victims
      of crime; accommodation crises; court cases; accident or sports injury.

The following will not be regarded as grounds for applying to submit late:
    any event that could have reasonably been expected or anticipated e.g. weddings, holidays, moving
    inadequate planning and time management.
    pressures of paid work.
    having more than one examination or other compulsory assessment or presentation etc. on the same
    computer or printer failure resulting in loss of data.
    difficulties with English language (including delays in proofreading).
    normal pregnancy (excluding standard maternity leave entitlement).

The above lists are not exhaustive, nor does the existence of acceptable grounds guarantee that an extension
to the submission date will be granted. Students are expected to take reasonable action to minimise
disruption to their studies.
