You will be notified of the dates of your coursework submission for the modules you are taking by the lecturers concerned. This information should also be available on the module specification on Blackboard. Coursework will be submitted either via the Coursework Submission Office or via Blackboard and your lecturer will inform you of any specific submission instructions.
The Coursework Submission Office (Reception area of the EAS School Centre) is open from 10am to 2pm, Monday to Friday. The office is closed promptly everyday at 2pm and a drop-box facility is available during out-of-office hours. Coursework submitted via the drop-box will be stamped with the submission date of the following day. Don’t leave submission of your work until the last minute as there can be queues! Students will be notified of a submission deadline via MAP and from here you will be able to print off a cover sheet prior to the submission of your work.
- Print off the Submission Cover sheet from MAP and attach it to your work securely.
- Take it to the Coursework Submission Office where the work will be stamped, then scanned and an email notification will be sent to you confirming receipt.
It is the student’s responsibility to bring the coursework bound and secured for submission. Ensure you have appropriate stationary for submission (folders, stapled, etc), as you can not purchase this from the Coursework Submission Office.
