Mitigation

Extenuating or mitigating circumstances are those unexpected events which have had a detrimental effect on your study for a specific period of time covering your assessments. These will be submitted to History as your home department.

It is in your interest to draw the department’s attention to them and ask for them to be considered in mitigation of underperformance.

Please see the full information and guidance here.

 

History and Philosophy (V1V5)

This course will help you understand the importance of thinking critically about how we know and experience the world, and recognise the importance of linking precision in thought and analysis to a grounded understanding of different historical periods. You’ll learn to consider ideas for their own sake, while recognising that they are developed in particular contexts, for particular purposes, and reflect the conditions under which they are produced.

History and Sociology (VL13)
