The University’s Special Consideration Policy can be found at 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 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 (


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.
