Deadlines and assignment submissions

Academic Deadlines

The ability to complete a piece of academic work in a prescribed amount of time is part and parcel of the assessment process. All assignments have firm deadlines. The full list of submission dates is available on Moodle and on the noticeboard outside the lecture rooms. We recognise that some terms will inevitably have heavier workloads than others and that often you will be juggling community responsibilities as well as practical placements or context work with your studies. However, one of the skills that you will develop during your time at College is to organise and manage your workload. This means setting your priorities in such a way as to meet deadlines successfully and learning to cope with the inevitable fluctuations in work pressure.

Submitting Assignments

You may submit your assignments as soon as they are finished, even if it is before the deadline. Assignments must be submitted via Turnitin using Moodle 2 by midnight on the deadline date (with the exception of modules assessed by a portfolio, which must be submitted by hard copy only). Markers aim to complete marking within five weeks of the deadline wherever possible. This will enable you to respond to feedback in subsequent assignments and so to progress through the year. If this is not possible, for example, through illness, you will be notified as soon as possible of the revised return date. Marking of your first assignment will be fast tracked if possible.

From September 2016, we are planning to introduce online marking for most modules. In a few cases, it will be necessary to hand in hard copies as well as electronic submission. Students will be advised of the modules where this is necessary. In such cases, hard copies must be handed in to the Academic and Practical Training (APT) Office by 9:00 am on the day following the deadline date (whereas electronic submission is by 11:59pm on deadline day). A cover sheet is needed for each assignment. These are available to download from Moodle or from the APT Office.
