Please note: Self-certification process is only in operation for Coursework Extension Requests and Deferral Requests. Self-certification is not in operation for the University’s appeals procedures.

The expectation is that any students using these processes will provide supporting evidence as required by, and detailed in, the Academic Regulations, Fit to Sit Policy and associated forms.
