Planning your workload
If you have difficulty in managing your workload, you can seek advice from a number of sources, including from staff in from staff in your department including your personal tutor, SU Advice and your Student Services Hub.
You'll be given a deadline by which work is to be completed and handed in. You
should always aim to submit work before the deadline. This ensures you should never have any problems with a late submission. A simple tactic is to set your own deadline, perhaps several days in advance of the last possible date for submission and to organise your work around that.
You should familiarise yourself with the primary submission methods for coursework and online examinations of each department that you are taking a module with. Each assessment must be submitted by the deadline published in order to gain a mark. If you are concerned that you cannot complete an assessment by the deadline you should contact your department before the deadline or consider making a late submission claim.
There is a single policy for the late submission of coursework and online examinations (.pdf) for both undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes of study.
The policy states that all assessments submitted after the deadline will receive a mark of zero, unless there are valid circumstances resulting in your late submission.
