If you have difficulties and/or additional needs, please contact the CMI Programme Co-ordinator or speak with your tutor in confidence. They will do all they can to ensure you have the assistance you need to complete your course.
Exceptional circumstances may be a factor in considering a request for an extension of an assignment deadline (see Section 5.2). A student may also draw upon Exceptional Circumstances to explain inability to meet the attendance requirements for a course.
Evidence of exceptional circumstances must be submitted to the Graduate School by email, by the published deadline.
As set out in Section 5.2 above, if you know you are going to miss a training day or assignment deadline because of exceptional circumstances, you should inform the CMI Programme Co-ordinator in advance by telephone or email of your absence.
Evidence of exceptional circumstances and their impact on academic performance will be considered by the Queen’s CMI Project Team and, if approved, concessions to the attendance requirement made on the basis of exceptional circumstances.
The Project Team is not obliged to consider any medical certificate or evidence of exceptional circumstances presented after the published deadline. The exception to this is where a concession has been granted on the grounds of a student’s disability.
