This article will provide information on the availability of an extenuating circumstances extension for a thesis.

If you have extenuating circumstances which have prevented you from submitting your thesis for examination during the approved period of registration, you should discuss this matter with your First Supervisor at the earliest opportunity and before the affected review or examination.

Extenuating circumstances relate to short term issues and it may be that a period of approved interruption is advised for longer term issues. The research regulations include further guidance on extenuating circumstances.
