Inclusive Support Plans

If you have an Inclusive Support Plan (ISP) in place because of a long-term illness or disability that gives you extra time to complete work for deadline assignments, you can use this extra time whenever you need to without having to submit a claim for exceptional circumstances. Please make sure that you submit within the additional time allowed.

  • For example, if your ISP gives you an additional week, you must submit your work no later than one week after the original deadline.

For further information about coursework extensions, including instances where they cannot be applied, always check the instructions given in the specific module handbook.

If you experience a significant flare up of an underlying condition that you can evidence, or if something completely separate is affecting your ability to study or complete an assessment, you can make an application for an extension or a deferral using the exceptional circumstances process in the normal way.

  • For example, if you apply for a two-week extension through the EC process and you already have one week through your ISP, your deadline will be three weeks from the original deadline.
