Special Consideration

The University’s Special Consideration Policy can be found at https://staff.mq.edu.au/work/strategy-planning-and-governance/university-policies-and-procedures/policies/special-consideration The Special Consideration Policy applies only to short-term, unexpected, serious and unavoidable circumstances that arise after a study period has commenced. If a student believes that their studies have been seriously and unavoidably disrupted by any of the events set out in the Special Consideration Policy, a Special Consideration Application form must be submitted together with supporting evidence to the Program Director at studentsupport@mafc.mq.edu.au no later than five (5) working days of the assessment task date or due date. This form can be found in Quicklinks on the MAFC student website (mafcstudents.mq.edu.au).

 

If a serious and unavoidable disruption event affects your ability to complete a scheduled exam, and your application in respect of Special Consideration is approved by the Program Director, you will be required to sit a supplementary exam on the date specified by the Program Director and you will need to make yourself available for this exam.
