***Students must contact the appropriate service below BEFORE completing an I Grade application form.***
The University supports students who find themselves in an immediate crisis and, where relevant, takes actions to avert recurrence.
An I grade shall only be awarded in cases where the student has not completed all of the requirements for the module and has submitted certifiable evidence of medical and/or psychological illness or immediate family crisis where the presence of the student is indispensable. I grades shall not be assigned in response to pleas of pressure of work.
Students submitting medical certification must request their doctor to complete an External Medical Certification Form. In cases where students have been hospitalised, hospital certification can be accepted.
To meet grade deadlines, certificates must be presented within five working days of the student’s relevant end-of-semester examinations.
Please see the Handbook of Academic Regulations and Procedures for all the regulations in relation to I grades (section 4.2.3).
