UEA Deadline Assessments - Medical Certificates
We can only issue medical certificates for students registered with us. If you are not registered with us please consult your own GP.
New university regulations, approved in June 2013, clarify how students can report ‘extenuating circumstances’ in relation to different types of assessment. For the full university guidance please see www.uea.ac.uk/learningandteaching/documents/assessment
An ‘extenuating circumstance’ is a factor outside the student’s control which affects an assessment.
The following are described as ‘deadline assessments’:
- Written assignment
Further extension requests within one semester must be supported by acceptable evidence (so if it is medical reason you will need a medical certificate).
Please make a routine doctor’s appointment by ringing reception on 01603 251600 if you need a medical certificate to support your extenuating circumstances on medical grounds. If you have already seen a doctor about the problem concerned recently then please complete this form: Request for medical certificate form
Completed medical certificates are emailed directly to your Hub. Please note that while we endeavour to process medical certificates as soon as possible they can take up to 2 weeks to be sent. To prevent fraudulent application for medical certificates we reserve the right to check on all details given to us. Fraudulent applications will be reported to the University.
