The University of Bedfordshire appreciates that sometimes unforeseen situations outside of your control may prevent you from carrying out your academic work.
These are referred to as mitigating circumstances.
Our mitigation process continues to operate and will provide the opportunity for you to tell us of any reasons that are affecting your performance or prevent you from completing your work, and we are in the process of making temporary changes to take into account the unprecedented situation. For example:
We do not wish to place any non-essential demands on the NHS and other medical services at this time and will therefore exceptionally waive the usual requirement for students to obtain a medical or doctor’s certificate to support mitigation claims for short-term extensions. You can apply if you are a keyworker - even if you are a full-time student.
Please contact SiD at email@example.com or 0300 300 0042 and ask to book an appointment to speak to a student engagement adviser. The team will then find the next available slot and you will be allocated a 30 minute Telephone appointment where you can discuss the process and any concerns you may have.
You should submit your assessment as soon as it is complete! Keep working on your assessment and submit your work the day you complete it. All extensions will be awarded from the original hand-in date.
Once we receive your completed form and explanation of your circumstances we will normally be able to make a decision within two working days. We will usually email our decision to your student email address.
If you choose to submit work within the submission deadline then no additional mitigation can be applied and your grade will stand.
