» Programme on OCD seeks participants

We have been contacted by a TV production company looking for people aged 18 – 30 who have OCD and would be willing to take part in a TV programme about living with the condition.

Crackit Productions are making a new two part series following the impact of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder on people aged between 18 and 30 years old. The series aims to demystify this condition and reflect the reality of how people live with this disorder on a day to day basis.

The production company are looking for people who have OCD (or believe they might have OCD) to take part in the show. They say that contributors will be supported throughout the filming and aftercare will be provided for people who take part in the final aired programme. However if you are considering this, we would advise you to think carefully before agreeing to participate.

» TV Licence Refund? Don't Forget to Claim if You're Moving Home For The Summer

TV Licensing would like to remind those students moving home for the summer they may be able to claim a refund on their licence.

Students who purchased a TV Licence at the start of the academic year will have a full three months remaining on their licence and refunds can be claimed for unused quarters.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of the refund. To be eligible, students need to have a TV Licence, be leaving their halls or rented accommodation and be moving to a licensed address.

Matt Francis, spokesperson for TV Licensing Wales, said: “The student refund is brilliant news for students and we encourage those who bought their licence at the start of the academic year to take advantage of it. We want to help students understand the law when it comes to watching live TV on any device and help them avoid a fine. Reminding them about the refund is part of knowing when you do and don’t need a licence.”

Recent research by TV Licensing shows four out of five students watch TV via some device with 74 per cent of students using a laptop to watch TV. A TV Licence is needed to watch, record or stream programmes at the same time as they are shown on TV. This is the case whether you use a TV, laptop, games console, tablet, mobile phone, or any other device.

To arrange a refund, or for further information, simply visit: www.tvlicensing.co.uk/studentinfo, or call TV Licensing on 0300 790 6113.

» Extenuating Circumstances Claims Deadline: 23rd May 2017

The final date to submit Extenuating Circumstances claims for the 2016/17 academic session is 12.00 midday on Tuesday 23rd May 2017.

There may be a small number of courses exempt from this deadline. You can check with your Campus Advice Zone if you are not sure.

All claims must be made on the official extenuating circumstances form and must be supported by appropriate independent evidence. Incomplete claims or claims without evidence will not be accepted.

For further information and advice and to obtain the relevant forms please contact your Campus Advice Zone.

Any claims submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. Any student who believes that they have good reason for being unable to submit an extenuating circumstances claim prior to the deadline, can consider making an appeal through the Academic Appeals regulations to appeal against the decision of the assessment board.

You are strongly recommended to discuss the appeal process with your Campus Advice Zone.
