8 June 2020


The Financing & Capital Raising Professional™ Programme Submission Extension & Deferral Policy (The FCRPTM Submission Extension & Deferral Policy) governs the request to: (1) defer Online Exam, and (2) deferral of expiry for The FCRPTM Programme completion.


The FCRPTM Submission Extension & Deferral Policy governs extension requests for submitting Course Reflection Assignments, projects etc., and deferral of Online Exam and Programme Completion Expiry deadline.


Submission Extension Requests


Extension requests re submission of Course Reflection Assignments, projects  etc. is only allowed under exceptional circumstances, & valid reason must be given, such as sickness. Documentary proof is also required. Extension request solely due to unable to complete the assignment / project is usually not permitted.

Submission extension request has to be submitted with at least 10 days notice prior to deadline.

For each assignment / project / Final Year Project, extension request can be submitted once only.


Online Exam Deferral


It is noteworthy for the same module, Online Exam will only be held once a year. Therefore, the soonest deferred date for an online exam would be one year later.

All exam deferral must be supported by valid reasons, and documentary proof. If necessary, you may apply for Online Exam deferral to the next Online Exam the following year, subject to payment of deferral fee, and the application must be submitted at least 2 months prior to exam date.

Each Online Exam can be deferred once only.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, deferral fees for programme completion usually has already covered deferral fees for the online exam(s). If deferral of Online Exam also results in deferral of the programme completion, you would need to apply for Deferral of Programme Completion Expiry instead, with payment of relevant fees. Please see below section.


Deferral of Expiry for Programme Completion 


After acceptance into The FCRPTM Programme, each course participant has up to three years to complete the whole Programme.

Deferral requests for completion deadline of the FCRPTM Programme are subject to a fee and application must be submitted at least three months prior to relevant Programme Completion Expiry, and can only be extended once only for one year, subject to approval by PTI & Our PDLC Partners. This means after deferral of completion deadline, a total of four years from initial registration date for completion of the Programme.


For Both Deferral of Online Exam & Programme Completion Deadline


Course participants are reminded:

  • Online exam date to the following year may or may not be the same.
  • The curriculum and content of the study materials may vary from year to year. You may need to buy additional textbooks, or textbooks of newer edition.
  • Once the fee is paid, the deferral can not be revoked, withdrawn, reversed, or reinstated.
  • The fees paid for deferral are non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-assignable.
