When your health affects your study
If you are sick you should:
- tell someone
- consider seeing a doctor
- apply for special consideration if your illness might affect your performance in an exam or other assessment. You will need a medical impact assessment statement (PDF 56KB, 1p)
- apply for a short-term extension (up to seven days) for assignments through your course coordinator.
