Normally, your time at the University of Bristol will be happy and productive. Unfortunately, though, it's possible that your studies will be affected by illness or unexpected events. This guide should help you understand the University’s regulations and policies on things such as illness that affect your studies and are outside your control. If you’re new to the extenuating circumstances process, we suggest you read through all the sections.

This guide was jointly developed by Bristol SU and the University of Bristol.
