Online submission

The University requires all suitable coursework to be submitted online.  Some forms of assessment are unsuitable for online submission and arrangements for the submission or presentation of such work will be set out in your Module Guide.

Work submitted is both submitted and received through password protected, secure sites. Assignments should not be submitted via email as this is not considered to be a secure method of submission. Your Module Leader will advise you of the arrangements for online submission for each piece of work.  Assessment information is also provided in Module Guides which you should find on your Module Blackboard site.

Where there is network failure and Blackboard, Pebblepad or Turnitin or the University network is not accessible at the time of submission, or in the 12 hour period before that time, the submission deadline will be amended to the next working day on which Blackboard, Pebblepad or Turnitin or the network becomes available.

By submitting your assignments electronically you are making a declaration of intellectual integrity. You are declaring that the work is your own, and that you have read the Academic Regulations relating to assessment of work and that the work complies with those regulations. Further information on intellectual ownership can be obtained here.  Without this declaration you may be at risk of committing plagiarism.  You are also agreeing to allow your work to be compared against the work of others to detect plagiarism and collusion.
