Late submission of coursework

If you submit a piece of coursework late, but within 10 working days of the set deadline for that coursework, your work will be accepted and marked. However, the mark will be capped at 40% (50% for postgraduate courses) if the work meets the criteria of a pass.

The regulations remain otherwise unchanged, i.e., any piece of coursework submitted beyond 10 working days of the set deadline for that coursework will not be accepted and the mark will be recorded as 0%.

These regulations (D4.7 and D4.8) are in the University Academic Regulations for Taught Awards.

Marks are not capped for late work covered by extenuating circumstances accepted as valid (Extenuating Circumstances Policy and Procedure).

If you are unclear about the change please contact your Personal Tutor.
