If you have legitimate reasons for not completing your work on time, you should discuss your problems with your Programme or Module tutor BEFORE the submissions deadline.
The School defines late work as work submitted for assessment after the published deadline, where the student does not or cannot cite proven mitigating circumstances.
The University has an agreed common policy on penalties for late submission for modules beginning in September 2019 or later, as follows:
- For first-sitting or deferred coursework, for each day (or working day for hard copy submission only) for up to five days after the published deadline, coursework submitted late (including deferred coursework, but with the exception of referred coursework), will have the numeric grade reduced by 10 grade points until or unless the numeric grade reaches or is 40 (for undergrad) or 50 (for postgrad). Coursework (including deferred coursework) submitted later than five days (five working days in the case of hard copy submission) after the published deadline will be awarded a grade of zero (0).
- Referred coursework submitted after the published deadline should be awarded a grade of zero unless an extension has been granted.
