Special consideration and special arrangements

While studying, you may experience short-term circumstances beyond your control, such as illness, injury or misadventure, which affects your preparation or performance in an assessment. We can provide support to you in these circumstances through granting special considerations.

If you have essential commitments that will impact your preparation or performance in an assessment, it may be possible for you to make special arrangements to fulfil your responsibilities.

The University's special consideration process is governed by Part 14 of the Coursework Policy and the Assessment Procedures.
