The Students' Union Campaigns team would like to hear from students who have submitted, or have considered submitting, an Exceptional Circumstances claim (formerly known as Mitigating Evidence) in the last two academic years.
We are launching an online survey to gather further evidence to feed-in to the Students' Union and University Exceptional Circumstances joint action plan. Last year, we put together a report on the Mitigating Evidence process with a number of recommendations, based on research we conducted with students. As a result, since the 2015/6 academic year, there have been a number of changes to the Exceptional Circumstances system.
The Campaigns team would like to assess the impact of these changes on students' experience and identify further areas for improvement.
