Late submission

Print Friendly

It is your responsibility to ensure that your work is submitted on time. If there is a legitimate reason for not being able to meet the specified deadline, approach your course organiser for an extension before the deadline.

Do this as soon as you become aware that you might have a problem. University policy is that work submitted after the specified (or re-negotiated) date will be deemed to be a late submission and will be subject to a deduction of FIVE MARKS PER DAY overdue for up to 7 days (i.e. including weekends and University holidays).  After 7 days a mark of 0% will be recorded. (This policy applies throughout the University.)

Note that late submission of the final MSc dissertation (Final Project) is particularly serious and could result in failure of the dissertation component, implying failure of the MSc degree.

Your scheduling of all your work must take into account the vagaries of software and hardware: no kind of equipment failure, lost material, theft of laptops, etc. will normally be taken as a legitimate reason for lateness or non-submission.

If you require an extension that is less than 7 days, please download this form, complete and return to your course organiser;
