How To Apply

If you have a disability or medical condition that you feel might impact on your ability to perform in exams you can apply for special examination arrangements. 

Please note the application deadline for the main examination period 16/17 has now passed. 

Applications for all other examinations/department tests must be submitted 6 weeks prior to the date of your exam.  

Applications for the 17/18 academic year will open at the start of term. 

In the event of sudden illness or accidental injury we can consider applications which are received at least 7 calendar days prior to the date of the examination. Where applications cannot be submitted in time, students should apply for a deferral to the next normal occasion under the Extenuating Circumstances Regulations

In order to request an application form please contact us giving information on your circumstances.
