• Student Request Forms

    Forms for all other taught courses

    If you are studying on a course outside of the Undergraduate Modular Programme (UMP), the forms on this page will allow you to request changes in circumstance, for example if you need to change mode of study or request a period of approved temporary withdrawal.

    If you want to add or remove modules within the normal deadlines, or if you want to request the addition of a module after the normal deadline, the Online Programme Registration (OLPR) facility on PIP should be used. You should only use the forms for adding and deleting modules if you are not able to make the changes via PIP.

    If you need help filling out the forms on this page, please refer to the guides for completing the forms

    If you have any queries regarding the forms on this page, or if you cannot find the form you are looking for, please contact the Course and Student Administration Team (csa@brookes.ac.uk).

  • Mitigating circumstances form

    The University defines mitigating circumstances as: 'circumstances which are beyond the control of the student and which could not be reasonably accommodated by the student and which seriously impair performance in assessment.'

    If you believe that you have been affected by mitigating circumstances you should complete the online form located under "My Records and Results" on your PIP.

    If you are requesting either an extension of more than one week, a re submission, a resit, or a disregard you can submit the completed form and your supporting evidence by email to Student Central at the following address (studentrecords@brookes.ac.uk). Applications can be scanned using any of the Managed Print services located at all campuses.

    If you are requesting an extension of up to one week please give your completed form to the module leader(s) of the module(s) for which you believe you were affected."Until you've received written confirmation of an extension, you should continue to work to your original coursework deadline. If that deadline arrives while you're waiting for the outcome of a mitigating circumstances application, you should hand in what you've managed to complete. If you're subsequently given an extension through mitigating circumstances, you can then hand in the fully completed coursework"

    If you are unable to use the PIP form, you can find a downloadable copy of the Mitigating Circumstances Form, however you should only use this form if you can not access the online mitigating circumstances form on your PIP. The online form on PIP is the quickest way to submit your mitigating circumstances application.
