The University's Assessment Policy describes how mitigating circumstances should be considered. Guidance notes for students and staff, along with the University's application form for consideration of mitigating circumstances, frequently asked questions, process flow chart and advice and support flow diagram are provided through the link below. Students are advised to read the guidance notes on mitigating circumstances and frequently asked questions before completing and submitting an application form for consideration of mitigating circumstances to their School. 

The flow charts are there to give you a quick guide to accessing advice and to show how we receive mitigating circumstances applications.
