PGR students - Extension of study

This page provides information for Postgraduate Research students who want to extend the end date of their degree.

An extension gives you extra time at the end of your research degree and extending your end date. Extension of study will be considered where there are severe mitigating circumstances.

You can apply for an extension through Liverpool Life.

Approval will be sought from your Primary Supervisor, School, Institute, Department, Director of PGR, Faculty Director of PGR and the PGR Student Team.

We will email you with the outcome of your request.

International students

International students should seek advice from the International Support Team as to whether they would need to extend their visas to accommodate any extension to their studies.
