Forms and templates
Change of module
Students can submit a request to change modules after the module enrolment system closes by using an online form.
Change of programme
Students do not have an automatic entitlement to change programme, but if places are available and the student meets entry criteria they may be permitted to move to a new programme.
Examiners' joint report forms (postgraduate research)
The appropriate examiners' joint report form should be completed by the examiners at the end of the viva.
Examiners' preliminary report forms (Research)
Each examiner needs to complete a preliminary report form before the postgraduate research degree viva. There are separate forms depending on whether it is a first submission or a resubmission.
Extension request form (taught postgraduate)
Form for requesting extensions to study period for taught postgraduate students.
External examiner appointment and changes to appointment
An external examiner is appointed to each taught programme, or when necessary due to the specialist nature, appointed to specific modules within a programme. Sometimes the duties of an external examiner may need to be amended or the appointment period of an external examiner may need to be extended.
External examiner report form (Taught)
Each year external examiners are required to submit an annual report within six weeks of the relevant Progression and Awards Board.
External review of a new or amended programme
As part of the programme approval process, proposals to amend an existing programme or introduce a new programme must be considered by an external reviewer and a report provided.
Internal examiner nomination form
Module leaders are usually responsible for assessment of students on their modules. Occasionally, additional internal examiners need to be appointed using the form provided.
Mitigating circumstances are normally exceptional, short term, unforeseen and unpreventable events that have a significantly disruptive effect on the student’s ability to take assessments.

The events may affect the student’s ability to complete coursework or other assessments and revise for and attend on-campus assessments.
