Policy on Submission of Assignments

Students are required to hand in essays and homework by the due date. All essays and homework must be placed in the appropriate essay-boxes or handed directly to tutors.

The following policy applies in all language teaching units:

  • For work relating to language acquisition the due date is final; late work cannot be accepted (except where appropriate reason/certification are produced).
  • For major essays and assignments relating to the cultural, literary and/or socio-linguistic components of courses, late work will be accepted until two weeks following the due date, incurring a penalty of 2% per day. After two weeks, work will not be accepted for marking purposes (except where appropriate reasons/certification are provided).
  • Students applying for an extension should normally do so at least one week in advance and should obtain the permission of the unit coordinator or their tutor.
