For students of research programmes, an extension is required if you go beyond the maximum period of time allowed from first registration on your programme.
Candidates who do not submit their thesis within the maximum period of time allowed from first registration for the course for which they have been approved will require approval for extensions from the relevant College. Research students use the Research Registration Change Request Form to request an extension. This must be accompanied by a detailed progress review which you may find on our Guidelines and Policies page.
Please familiarise yourself with UCC's webpages for research students.
