Is it possible to get my college work sent home to be completed? - November 9th 2009, 09:53 PM

I have just recovered from being ill and I have a horrible feeling I am beginning to get ill again. The same symptoms are back again. If I am ill again it will be impossible for me to go to college, I simply would pass out or something on the bus journey. I am thinking of asking to have some time off college to do work at home, and just get on with things alone. Going into the cold to go out is making me worse and my college work is really suffering. I have really thought about it and the only day it is really necessary for me to go to college, and the day I will miss out the most on is a Monday and that is just the afternoon. I am thinking if my tutors allowed me to stay home to do work there then I could probably make college on a Monday afternoon for the time being.
I have a feeling with a peaceful house during the day I am going to be a lot more productive.
I have a cold and cough now, and abdominal pains are starting again. I think this is all just a mixture of being previously being ill, stressed and bereved recently.
I know I'm not going to be able to cope with college.

*Just noting for the US people that college is meaning 6th form not University as Paige (OP) is in the UK*

I think you're going to struggle to convince them that you need the work sent home if you're not actually ill. If you are ill, then it shouldn't be a problem, but if you're only worried about making yourself ill then they might start asking whether you are actually coping with being in college, etc. Ditto if this is extending over more than a couple of weeks. I'd talk to the student services at your college and talk to your teachers rather than asking here, because everywhere is going to have different policies. This would not be okay at my college, but it might at yours.

Perhaps if you're struggling also talk to student services about the support they can offer you. I think all colleges have additional learning support who should be able to help you catch up on what you've missed.

Good luck.

I'm not sure if college in the UK works along similar policies from Canada in that if you miss a day, then tough shit for you. In Canadian universities (substitute colleges for UK), you either use your online resources and many assignments, lectures and so forth are online, or you go to your professor or TA and get the paper-forms of the material you need if it's not online. At my university, since pretty much everything is online, you could simply get the materials online and do it at home. Here though, you may have to hand the assignments in physically, although if you can get proper documentation that you were ill (i.e. doctor's note) and fill out a proper medical certificate that may allow for an extension or simply having your marks transferred to another test or assignment then you may be good to go. I say "may allow" because after you hand in your doctor's note and filled in the form, these will be reviewed by a small panel and then you'll be told by e-mail whether or not you got the permission to have your marks transferred to something else. If you don't do this, then you get late marks or depending on what it is, a zero. Here, if you tell you professor or TA you're ill by e-mail or in-person, then many of them will say too bad, get a doctor's note and fill out the form. There may be some exception to this rule but I've never had that exception and neither has anyone I know who attends universities in Canada or the US.

Paige (the OP) isn't at University she is at college.
In the UK this is basically like high school with more freedom where you're less pushed and less rules, treated like an adult etc.
Seen as kind of in between school and University but same content as the last two years of school

I'm in the UK at college, they've sent me work home and i've been off for over a month this year. Give them a call and see what they can do, usually talking to the student support services, (if your college has them) is more useful.
Good luck. :]
