From time-to-time things don't always go as planned. It is always best to fore-warn your school about any potential problems that may affect your studies, by speaking to your Programme Tutor and/or applying for an extension or Serious Adverse Circumstances (SACs).

The Advice & Support Centre is on hand to offer impartial advice on the appeals process:
