Extenuating Circumstances

While studying at QMU, you may face unexpected personal circumstances interfering with your academic work. If these circumstances are beyond your control and prevent you from performing well in your studies, speak to your Programme Leader. You will need to complete an Extenuating Circumstances form and submit it to the School Office as soon as the issue arises. In some occasions, you may be able to submit an Extenuating Circumstances form after your deadline. For more information, read our Extenuating Circumstances guidance and come to your Students’ Union if you are not sure how to complete your form.
