Mitigating Circumstances - MA students 2017/18

This form should be completed if you want to make the University aware of any mitigating circumstances which you believe may have adversely affected your performance either during the year. Please read the University Mitigating Circumstances guidance before completing the sections which apply to you. A link to the University Guidelines can be found to the right of this page. You may also use this form to apply for mitigation to be considered in respect of the industrial action that took place in term 2 of 2017/18. The University has invited students to submit cases for consideration of mitigating circumstances to their departments where they feel the strike has had a significant impact upon their ability to study or complete assessed work: The University states: ‘You will, however, need to show clearly how the strike has had a disproportionate impact upon your ability to study or complete assessments, given that your tutor group or wider cohort is likely to have been similarly affected.’ The Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies has established a sub-committee of our established Mitigating Circumstances committee to assess this impact. Students whose studies were not affected by the strike do not need to fill in this form. If you believe your studies were affected, however, please describe the impact on this form in relation to specific modules. In the boxes below, please state the module code number and title for all modules you believe were affected. You have a maximum of 50 words per module to describe the impact you would like the sub-committee to consider. Please fill this form in by the dedline. After this date, the sub-committee will assess these forms in relation to the University’s statement above.
This form must be submitted no later than 7 days in advance of the Mitigating Circumstances Panel. Forms will not be accepted after the deadline unless there are exceptional reasons.
If your home department is not the English Department, please contact your home department to apply for Mitigating Circumstances.
