Providing letters in support of mitigation
Students accessing the Counselling and Mental Health Service present for a wide range of issues and at times these issues may interfere with a students’ ability to meet academic commitments. A department may take these circumstances into consideration when reviewing marks, offering deadline extensions or the possibility of re-sitting exams; however it is likely that they will require written evidence.
Students can request letters directly from their counsellor or mental health advisor whilst participating in sessions; alternatively a letter can be requested in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the intended recipient, their email address and department and the deadline for submission of evidence.
During the summer term, letters in support of mitigating circumstances should be requested as early as possible, and no later than 16th May. We will endeavour to action any requests received after this date but we cannot guarantee they will be completed in time. In all cases, students should confirm the final dates for submission with their individual departments.
