Return ethics forms or give an extension for dissertation deadline
It has now been more than two months since we submitted our ethics forms on 1st November. Most students have not received their ethics forms back with approval.
If the lecturers are unable to return ALL our ethics forms by Friday 10th January 2020, they need to allow an extension on the deadline for our dissertation and dissertation dissemination (12 minute presentation based on the dissertation).
We should receive a one day extension for every day from January 1st that they are unable to return our forms (so if returned on the 14th, we should receive a 14 day extension).
This is necessary as most people are collecting data via online forms, and have been advised by dissertation supervisors to have completed data collection by January 31st. This is no longer a reasonable time frame in which to collect enough data, or to produce a dissertation to the best of our ability.
Please sign this petition so it can be put to the student union to give us a small extension... or at least return the ethics forms this week.
If happy to do so, please leave a comment with your student number.
EDIT 07/01/20: Thanks to everyone who has signed so far - if you haven't please still do!! Just to update - I have had a meeting with the VP of Education in the SU, she has spoken to the course leaders and is investigating the matter and helping us with requesting the extension. Will update again when I know more. Please sign the petition, the more signatures the better!
EDIT 2 09/01/2010: VP of Education has met with course leaders; they will discuss the matter and email us within 10 days (check your student emails). Please do NOT comment with names of lecturers as they will have to be deleted for personal safety reasons.
