Extensions of Registration
Extensions of registration may be granted by the College/Faculty Graduate
Studies Committee as required and in exceptional circumstances.
During the last year of candidature, where it appears that the requirements
are unlikely to be met by the maximum date, students MUST apply in writ-
ing, through their supervisor, for an extension to the College/Faculty Grad-
uate Studies Committee for such extensions to be granted.
The application should detail the reasons for the extension being sought
and may include the difficulties that might have been experienced during
the candidature, and why the candidate is unable to complete in the
expected time. These difficulties should have been referred to in the stu-
dent’s progress reports over the period.
The student and supervisor must provide the Committee with a realistic
estimate of the time required to complete the course. The time period
should be no longer than one calendar year.
Extensions are not granted automatically.
Requests for extensions must be made in advance.
Where an extension is granted the following steps must be taken:
– Student Extension Request form must be signed by student and lodged
by the College/Faculty Graduate Studies Committee, through the Pro-
gramme Coordinator or the student’s supervisor.
– Fees will be calculated for such students based on the extension period
and applicable policies.
