Students are requested to complete the Temporary Suspension of Studies (TSS) form electronically and submit it, from their Heriot-Watt email account, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Students can append an electronic signature, but in the absence of their handwritten signature, the sending of the form from their Heriot-Watt account is deemed a valid signature. Students should either submit scanned copies of supporting documentation with the form, or hard copy documents can be handed in to the School Office, EM 1.25. The School Office staff will then forward the form and documents to the relevant academic members of staff e.g. for taught students – Year Co-ordinator (UG students), Programme Director (PGT students) and then the Director of Learning & Teaching for completion and signature.
Current students at the Edinburgh Campus should complete the relevant form and submit it to the Student Service Centre, email@example.com
As part of the University’s policy on providing feedback to students, students can request an opportunity to view their examination script(s) in the presence of an administrator if they wish to look at the script to see how marks have been allocated. You cannot query academic judgement in the allocation of marks. This access to scripts is in addition to the general feedback material that is made available on Vision.
