Can a college extend a course mid way through?

Hi, my partner has gone back to college and they have suddenly said that they are going to extend the course by another year, holding everyone back from qualifying when they should have done.
One of the tutors had a break down and had a lot of time off sick so the college have said the students have missed too much therefore extending the course by a year.
Surely this is the college's issue and should have gotten someone to cover?
How can they decide to hold all of these students back by a year?
We have been waiting for my partner to qualify as we have a baby on the way so could do with him qualifying asap.

I would just like to know if this is even possible?
Thanks smile

Yes it is possible. When the veterinary nursing course was changed all FE students returned for what they expected to be their 2nd and final year to discover another year had been added to the course.
