You should apply for an extension using the Faculty's online system. Your online application is sent to staff member coordinating the unit you are taking. Do not ask your tutor; tutors do not have the authority to grant extensions. And apply sooner rather than later; do not wait until after the due date for the assignment.
- The first step is to discuss your assignment with the unit of study coordinator; that meeting should happen within fifteen working days of the mark for the assignment being available to you.
- If you are not happy with that discussion, the next step is a formal appeal, which is lodged with the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Office and overseen by the Dean. You should make that appeal within fifteen days of your meeting with the unit coordinator. A formal appeal requires completing a form and a written statement outlining the reason for your appeal. You can find the form and further information here
