Students can request extensions to coursework deadlines via emailing the Student Support Team ahead of the deadline. The maximum extension allowed is 7 days, as per University of Edinburgh policy.
There are no 5% late penalties applicable if a student submits after an extended deadline; this reverts to 0%. The only exception to this is if the student has a learning profile which allows extensions because of a disability.
If a student cannot submit their coursework within this extended deadline because of circumstances that have affected their studies, they might wish to submit a special circumstances form.
Students can also request extensions to their UG Project and MSc dissertation; this is dealt with in different ways but handled by the Student Support Team.
