There are a number of reasons why we have deadlines. One reason is to do with recruitment objectives. We want you to be able to show employers that you can manage your time and workload within a set timeframe.
Another reason is that it is important to us that our certificates are not handed out to participants who did not engage with the content and subsequently plagiarised or submitted blank documents. So to ensure our students earn their certificates, all portfolios are peer-reviewed, and your submissions are reviewed by the EntryLevel team as well.
Because reviewing submissions takes a lot of time, we have to impose a deadline to ensure that we can manage this workload. This is not a system that is unique to us. This is how most schools and universities are able to check the work of their students.
Unfortunately, this is also why we cannot offer extensions to individual students.
If you miss the deadline, you will not be eligible for completion of the course.
You will retain access to the content however you will not receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
In the event that you or a loved one experiences a medical emergency, we may offer you the chance to defer your enrolment and start again in a new cohort or have your money refunded. If this is the case, we may ask for some sort of medical certificate or equivalent.
