• Your coursework will be given a zero mark if you do not submit a copy through Turnitin.
Please take care to ensure that you have fully submitted your work.
• Please ensure that you have submitted your work using the correct file format, unreadable
files will receive a mark of zero. The Faculty accepts Microsoft Office and PDF documents,
unless otherwise advised by the module leader.
• All work submitted after the submission deadline without a valid and approved reason will be
subject to the University regulations on late submissions.
o If an assessment is submitted up to 14 days late the mark for the work will be capped at the
pass mark of 40 per cent for undergraduate modules or 50 per cent for postgraduate modules
o If an assessment is submitted beyond 14 calendar days late the work will receive a mark of
zero per cent
o The above applies to a student’s first attempt at the assessment. If work submitted as a
reassessment of a previously failed assessment task is submitted later than the deadline the
work will immediately be given a mark of zero per cent
o If an assessment which is marked as pass/fail rather than given a percentage mark is
submitted later than the deadline, the work will immediately be marked as a fail

• The University wants you to do your best. However, we know that sometimes events happen
which mean that you can’t submit your coursework by the deadline – these events should be
beyond your control and not easy to predict. If this happens, you can apply for an extension
to your deadline for up to two weeks, or if you need longer, you can apply for a deferral,
which takes you to the next assessment period (for example, to the re-sit period following the
main Assessment Boards). You must apply before the deadline. You will find information
about applying for extensions and deferrals here.
• Students MUST keep a copy and/or an electronic file of their assignment.
• Checks will be made on your work using anti-plagiarism software and approved plagiarism
checking websites.
