Students have to sit their assessments in the same academic year in which they received their tuition. However, you might, under certain circumstances, be allowed to postpone one or more assessments to the next appropriate assessment opportunity. This process is called deferral.
Please read about the deferral policy BEFORE submitting an application:
LSE Deferral Policy – information about applying for a deferral
LSE Deferral Policy – student guidance
Please remember that this an application process and not a right.
Please read the ‘fit to sit’ policy above in conjunction with deferral guidance. Once you have read the above information and if you believe you fulfil the criteria you may submit a deferral application by completing the Deferral Application Form found here:
Deferral Application Form
For LLB please send your application form to email@example.com. For LLM please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you submit your application you will receive an acknowledgement from the Programmes Team and your application will be considered by a panel. Please remember to submit your application in good time, i.e. a minimum of 48 hours before the deadline, to give the Programmes Team and panel enough time to consider and process your request.
