Penalties for late submission of assessed coursework The University follows the following procedure when coursework is submitted late: When coursework including essays, laboratory reports, projects, performance or other similar activities is to constitute part of the whole of the assessment for a module, students should be told in writing at the start of the module the deadline by which the coursework is to be submitted and the penalty for late submission. Deadlines should be set taking account of student workload, and must avoid the revision period.
Consult your student handbook or speak to your module tutor or course administrator if you are unsure of a coursework deadline and submission procedures. See Senate Regulation 7. A possible outcome, if it is accepted that mitigating circumstances apply, is for late submission penalties to be waived for the assignment that has been affected.
Other options, such as the setting of a revised submission deadline, may also be applied if the Mitigating Circumstances Panel considers it is appropriate. In cases where there are no accepted mitigating circumstances, late submission of coursework shall lead automatically to the imposition of a penalty.
Penalties shall be applied as soon as the deadline is reached. For example, where a deadline is Where required for practical reasons the range and timing of penalties for the non-completion of certain forms of assessment such as presentations may be determined by departments in the light of local circumstances, but should be applied according to agreed procedures.
