Under exceptional circumstances (e.g., illness, accident, bereavement or critical personal circumstances) individual students may be granted an extension of the due date for an assignment.
A student who wishes to apply for an extension to the due date for any piece of assessment must apply in writing to the course co-ordinator(email@example.com) and outline the reasons why the extension is being requested. Evidence to support the application must be included (e.g., medical certificate). Applications must be made before the due date of the assignment.
The course co-ordinator will decide whether an extension will be granted. If an extension is granted, a new due date will be set and the student will be notified by email. Students must use their university email account if they are contacting the course lecturers. Emails from other accounts, e.g., web-based accounts are often caught up in the University’s spam mail. To avoid email going astray, or held up, students are advised to use their student account.
No resubmissions are granted in this course.
A student may apply for aegrotat consideration on ONE piece of assessed work that is worth 50% or less of the total course grade. Students should refer to Regulation H of the General Course and Examination Regulations and the University of Canterbury College of Education Assessment Guidelines.
Students should submit their assignments to the lecturer through the on-line course assignment drop box. Marked work will be posted back to students electronically through the online course grade book.
