In some circumstances, such as illness or other hardships, it is possible for students to apply for an extension to the essay deadline. You MUST apply for extensions via the Coursework Management section of Tabula. You also need to send an email to, copying in the Convenor of your MA. Please state the nature of the circumstance and supply appropriate documentation, such as a medical note.

This must be an original note signed by a medical doctor or equivalent. The department treats all medical notes and other sensitive material in confidence. You must apply for an extension in advance of the deadline. Requests for extensions after the deadline has passed will only be considered where the circumstances are grave and unforeseeable. Extensions are granted at the discretion of the Convenor of your MA programme.
