What are extenuating circumstances?

You can make an application for Extenuating circumstances (ECs) if you experience unexpected and severe issues  requiring an extension on your work. More details can be found at: https://www.falmouth.ac.uk/student-regulations. There are strict criteria in gaining extenuating circumstances.

You are required to submit an application for ECs through the My Falmouth portal. You will also need to upload professional evidence to support your application. For example, this could include medical correspondence or confirmation of an appointment.

  On occasion you maybe unable to provide evidence due to an on-going or sudden issue. If you are already engaged with Student Services, your worker maybe able to support your application so please speak with them. In rare instances where you may not be able to provide evidence  you should inform your Personal Tutor immediately and contact the EC Team to discuss.  


If you have any specific enquiries in relation to extenuating circumstances, then please email EC@falmouth.ac.uk
