Important Student Information

  • Module assessments are an important part of academic education. Full information on these assessments will be available on course pages on Moodle.
  • Students should ensure they are aware of relevant dates as this will allow you to plan accordingly.
  • Academic integrity will apply to each piece of work you complete. Time management, plagiarism, cheating within assessments are taken seriously and will be actioned.

Student Considerations

  • It is expected that all assessments will be submitted on time, however we do understand that extenuating circumstances can occur from time to time
  • Examples of extenuating circumstances are certified illness, bereavement or something that significantly impacts a student's ability to meet deadlines or complete a programme
  • If a student finds themselves affected by extenuating circumstances, they should contact the Academic Operations team.
  • Students can apply for an extension to coursework where necessary. Requests should be made in advance of assessment deadlines. Specific details regarding extensions/reruns and the guidelines surrounding them can be found on your course page on Moodle.
  • A member of the Academic Operations team will review an application when submitted and a response will be processed as quickly as possible.
