- Applications for Extensions - It should be noted that it is important for PhD candidates to submit within the deadline. However, the School also recognizes the differing nature of individual research degrees and approved a procedure by which students may apply for a suspension of regulations to allow a short period of continued enrolment beyond the 48 month deadline (84 months for part-time). Applications must be made via the Suspension of Regulations Procedure and should be submitted by your first supervisor. You are advised to apply for an extension well in advance of your submission deadline.
If you require advice on the submission or completion of any form please contact the Doctoral School Section directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
