DEFERMENT OF STUDY

Consideration for the deferment of study

A student who is sick for an extended period can apply to the Dean of the Faculty to defer his/her study for a certain period of time. For all such cases, an appropriate verification from a registered medical doctor is required. In special cases where the verification is not from a registered medical doctor, application for deferment of study can only be considered if the student has initially sought medical treatment. In psychiatric cases, approval for course re-registration will be subjected to the recommendation of the doctor involved.

Consideration for the deferment of sitting for examination

A student who is sick or faces other serious problems during the examination period must apply to the Dean of the Faculty to defer his/her sitting for the examination. However, any application for a deferment must be made within 48 hours of the examination.

Any application to defer the sitting of any examinations on medical grounds must be made with verification from the registered medical doctor who is treating the student. The attending doctor must be a government, a University or the University panel doctors.
