Extenuating Circumstances

We hope your time at the University of Nottingham will be happy and productive. However, unfortunately, it's possible that your studies may be affected by illness or unexpected events. This guide should help you understand the University’s regulations and policies on things such as illness that affect your studies and are outside your control. We suggest you read through all the sections.

This guide was jointly developed by your Students’ Union and the University of Nottingham and is intended to supplement information available in the Policy on Circumstances Affecting Students’ Ability to Study and Complete Assessments and relevant procedures. We advise you be aware of this policy throughout your studies so that if something happens, you know immediately what to do.
