Most modules will require that your complete an amount of coursework as part of your assessment. Coursework can include written work, such as essays, exercises, laboratory logbooks, projects, dissertations, portfolios of written work etc. However, it can also include non-written work such as performances, presentations, exhibitions etc.

Handing in coursework

Module tutors will publish deadlines for submission of coursework. Written assessed coursework must be submitted to the UniHelp desk, where it will be dated and receipted. You should keep your receipt - it is for your own protection.

Do not give written assessed coursework direct to your tutor.

Before submitting coursework to the UniHelp desk you must complete a coursework Cover Sheet which must be securely fastened (stapled or in a folder) and the following information must be clearly marked on the front:

* your name
* your student number
* the module code
* the module tutor's name

Stationery will not be provided at the UniHelp desk counter.

When the UniHelp Desk is closed please use the grey box next to the Reception Desk for coursework submission.

Written work should normally be handed in on the campus at which the module is being taught; if for any reason you have to hand it in at another campus please point this out to the UniHelp desk so that it can be sent on to the correct campus.

If, in an emergency, you have to send in written assessed work by post you must send it by recorded delivery to the UniHelp desk and keep the Post Office receipt. It will be deemed to have been submitted on the date of the postmark. Receipts for this work and other work submitted outside opening hours can be collected from the UniHelp desk.

Coursework may not be submitted in electronic form (including email and disk) except where this is an explicit requirement for that assessment in the module in question.

You must take a copy of all your work (photocopy or on disk) prior to submission.


It is important to meet deadlines for submitting written coursework. These will be laid down by module tutors no later than at the time the work is set.

Sometimes deadlines from different modules will come at the same time, and it is important to plan your workload to meet these deadlines.

Deferral of assessment of coursework is possible but you should ensure that you are aware of the possible consequences of doing this. More information on Deferral can be found here.
