- You must complete sections A to C of the online form and submit.
- You will be required to provide your College email address to commence this form.
Section A - Student details
This will require your basic details including your student ID number, programme of studies and supervisor details.
Section B - Details of your request
This will require details of the dates for your change in mode, as discussed with your supervisor, the type of change being requested, and the reason for the request.
The online form does not allow you to save your session, so pasting written comments from a Word document is advisable where longer comments are required.
The online form will require you to upload evidence of extenuating circumstances in a single electronic file (e.g. a single .pdf). You may need to scan the evidence to produce a single file to upload if there are several separate documents which are relevant to the case in question. If you have any problems with this, please contact us.
You should prepare the following in advance of starting the form, as this should be checked with your supervisor / Departmental PGR Lead before being pasted onto the relevant field in the form:
- your reason(s) for requesting a change to your mode of attendance.
If your request is for a Suspension of Regulations, i.e. a request for a change in mode AFTER 2 years of FTE studiies, you must indicate this on the form and provide supporting documentary evidence to fully explain the need for such a request. A request for a Suspension of regulations will not be considered if an application is submitted without any evidence.
Section C - Student's confirmation
This will require your confirmation that you have read, understood and acted on the advice as set out in these guidelines.
By submitting your form you are confirming that you would like the Doctoral School to start processing your request, in line with the process guidance provided above, and all the information you have provided on the form is true and correct.
You will receive an automated confirmation email, along with a copy of the details of your form once your application has been successfully submitted.
