+My research is impeded by restrictions arising from the coronavirus outbreak, what should I do?

 In the first instance, students and supervisors should discuss changing the phasing of work to bring forward some activities and to delay others.  

Where this is impractical, it may be possible to revise the objectives of the research project or to alter its methodology to enable research to be completed within the period of supervised study.  

Should this not be possible, the University has well-embedded and understood concession mechanisms already in place for circumstances such as extension to supervised studies and thesis submission extensions, extension to re-submission deadlines, suspension of supervised studies. Please discuss arrangements with your supervisor.
