Current Students

Special consideration

Further information


Despite your best efforts you may find your disability or medical condition adversely impacting on your study, making it difficult to manage your workload. Under these circumstances you may be eligible for 'special consideration'.

Special consideration may take the form of extensions, discretionary marking, deferred exams or withdrawal without academic penalty on medical grounds.


UniAccess is able to provide advice and to assist you to make an application to your faculty. You should first read details about special consideration and obtain an application form.

If you apply to withdraw without academic penalty after the census date due to a medical condition you may be eligible for remission of fees.
