How do I apply for an extension?

If you need a little more time to submit your assignments, you can apply for an extension for up to 5 extra calendar days.

Applying for an extension is simple, all you need to do is complete the online extension form. Or you can fill in form E and submit it to: mitigationapplications@uwl.ac.uk

You can also apply for an extension on the day of your submission

You will need to contact your course leader and let them know that you have applied for an extension, so that they are able to give you a new submission date.

For more information on applying for an extension, please read the University’s extension regulations.

What if I am not able to submit assignments after the 5 day extension?

If you are still not able to submit your assignment after the 5 day extension, then you need to apply for a further extension

You can obtain a further 5 day extension by emailed your module tutor and requesting a further extension from them

If this further extension is accepted, then you will receive another 5 working day extension.

What happens if I submit my assignment without applying for an extension?

If you do not apply for an extension and still submit your assignment within 10 working days of the deadline, your assignment will be capped at the pass mark.

If you do not apply for an extension and submit your assignment up to 11 days after the deadline, then your assignment will receive a mark of zero and you will be able to resubmit/re-sit the assignment. This resubmission will be capped at the pass mark 

What happens if I submit my assignment after the extension deadline?

If you submit your assignment after the 5-day extension, but do not apply for a further extension and you submit it within 10 days of the submission date, then your assignment will be marked but your grade will be capped at the pass mark 

If you have not applied for further extension and submit your assignment after 10 working days, then you will receive a non-submission for your assignment and you will given a capped re-sit/retake. This resubmission will be capped at the pass mark
