Extensions to coursework deadlines are only granted when your ability to complete coursework has been significantly affected by extenuating circumstances. To request an extension you should contact the relevant course or module coordinator as soon as it is possible to do so, and submit a self-certificate documenting the circumstances.

Although schools may attempt to schedule coursework deadlines to minimise clashes, it is not always possible to avoid them completely. You are expected to be able to plan ahead and to manage your time effectively; so you should not expect to be granted an extension due to a deadline clash.
