DEP: 6.15 Extension Requests and Fitness to Study

Please note that trainees can request a limited number of deadline extensions without their fitness to study undergoing review and the possibility of some consideration of voluntary or involuntary degree suspension or termination following sympathetic consultation with the Programme Director. A broad guideline would be: no more than three requests for an extension for the same reason, and no more than six for any reason, in the same year (further detail can be found in the QAA handbook:
