Most modules require students to complete a certain amount of coursework as part of their assessment. Coursework can include written work, such as essays, exercises, laboratory logbooks, projects, dissertations, portfolios of written work, etc. These may also include non-written work such as performances, presentations, exhibitions, as well as others.
Module tutors will provide deadlines for the submission of coursework. If students are required to submit a hard-copy of written, assessed work, it must be submitted to the Student Office where it will be dated and receipted. Students are advised to keep their receipt for their own protection and information.
Before submitting coursework to the Student Office, they must ensure it is securely fastened (stapled or in a folder), and the following must be marked clearly on the front:
- Full name
- Student number
- Module code
- Module tutor’s name
Please note that stationary will not be provided at the Student Office counter, and students must take a copy of all their work (either soft or hard copy) prior to submission.
It is vital that students submit their coursework by the deadline set by their module tutor. Such deadlines will be given to students in advance so they can manage their workload.
Undergraduate students must submit their coursework at the Student Office by 4:30pm.
Postgraduate students must submit their coursework at the Student Office by 6:30pm.
If students encounter exceptional circumstances that prevent them from meeting an assessment deadline (or from attending an examination), they may be entitled to a short extension or deferral of assessment.
A deferral of assessment is the postponement of the date students are due to submit an asssment or sit an examination until the next opportunity to do so, without penalty.
