Wellbeing > Emotional and Mental Health > Services for Students > Support for Extenuating Circumstances
As part of the procedure, students are require to submit evidence. Students often turn to their GP (or some other support, such as community psychiatric nurse, social worker or mentor) to supply a letter of explanation and support.
The Wellbeing Team have a strict policy in that we can not provide retrospective evidence. We can only comment whereby we have been working with a student on a regular basis (for at least two weeks).
Should you require us to support your application we will do so by email and send this to you to forward to Faculty.
Should you require an extension or require extenuating circumstances then you need to follow the appropriate procedure. Please contact your faculty for details. View the Extenuating Circumstances Policy here
