We strongly suggest that you try to submit all coursework by the deadline set as meeting deadlines is expected in employment. However, in our regulations, UEL has permitted students to be able to submit their coursework up to 24 hours after the deadline. Coursework which is submitted late, but within 24 hours of the deadline, will be assessed but subject to a fixed penalty.
The impact of the fixed penalty on your result will depend what level of study you are in and when you began your course at UEL. For full details see Part 3, Manual of General Regulations at https://www.uel.ac.uk/about/about-uel/governance/policies-regulations-corporate-documents/student-policies/manual-of-general-regulations .
Please note that if you submit twice, once before the deadline and once during the 24 hour late period, then the second submission will be marked and the fixed penalty applied.
This rule only applies to coursework. It does not apply to examinations, presentations, performances, practical assessments or viva voce examinations. If you miss these for a genuine reason, then you will need to apply for extenuating circumstances, or accept that you will receive a zero mark.
IF you fail this module you move on to your second, and final, opportunity
If either Assignment 1 or Assignment 2 is either a non-submission or does not meet the pass mark of 40% you will have a resubmission opportunity in term 2 [CW1] or term 2 [CW1 &/or 2]. Details will be made available on the Moodle site and the undergraduate student noticeboard.
Re-Submission of coursework for this module is online through Turnitin

Submitting Assessments Using Turnitin:
Turnitin is required for coursework assessments, such as report/research papers or projects in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and in PDF format. There are two main reasons we want you to use Turnitin:
- Turnitin can help you avoid academic breaches and plagiarism. When you use Turnitin before a submission deadline, you can use the Originality Report feature to compare your work to thousands of other sources (like websites, Wikipedia, and even other student papers). Anything in your work that identically matches another source is highlighted for you to see. When you use this feature before the deadline, you will have time to revise your work to avoid an instance of academic breach/plagiarism.
- Turnitin saves paper. When using Turnitin to electronically submit your work, you will almost never have to submit a paper copy.
Late Submissions Using Turnitin
UEL has permitted students to be able to submit their coursework up to 24 hours after the deadline. Assessments that are submitted up to 24 hours late are still marked, but with a deduction in marks (see above). However, you have to be very careful when you are submitting your assessment. If you submit your work twice, once using the original deadline link and then again using the late submission link on Turnitin, your assignment will be graded as late.
Turnitin System Failure
Best advice: Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your assessments electronically. If you experience a problem submitting your work with Turnitin, you should notify your lecturer/tutor by email immediately. However, deadlines are not extended unless there is a significant systems problem with Turnitin. UEL has specific plans in place to address these issues. If UEL finds that the issue with the system was significant, you will receive an email notifying you of the issue and that you have been given a 24 hour extension. If you don’t receive any email that specifically states you have been given an extension, then the original deadline has not been changed.
Return of Work and Feedback
Getting feedback on your module work · Please note that whilst feedback will be given by seminar tutors on draft/formative work via tutor’s student hours, or via email by arrangement, it shouldn’t be assumed that every aspect requiring amendment will be identified. The final responsibility for your work lies with you.
Feedback on your work following summative assessment is available online via Turnitin four working weeks following the submission. Final marked module work is normally available following the Field Assessment Boards. It is important that you access your work and analyse the comments and marks; these indicate how well you have achieved the learning outcomes and give you guidance as to how you can improve your work. You have spent time putting the work together to be marked, make sure you get full benefit of feedback and learn from what you did well and what you need to improve
