This text is in the Student Handbook. Feel free to insert it into your module guides and guidance on NILE.
If you attend a partner college, you will be given specific details of how and where to submit your work.
Although how you submit work may be slightly different, how it is assessed and graded will be the same.
The University is in the middle of changing the way coursework is submitted. As we progress through this academic year we will be phasing out paper copy submission and introducing electronic submission for all text based work. The project is known as SaGE (Submitting and Grading Electronically).
You must submit a paper and an e-copy
Submitting in paper copy
All students are expected to submit their text based assignments in two ways. They must be submitted in paper form and electronically.
Work must not be e-mailed to tutors directly or delivered to their offices, because the SAO provide a receipt which you will not possess if work is given directly to tutors. In the unlikely event of work getting lost, a receipt will show that work has been submitted. Without a receipt there is no evidence to show that the work has been undertaken, and you may be given a “G” grade.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fully aware of these procedures, including (e.g.) the times when the office is open, at which campus you are required to submit, etc.
If specific instructions for assignments are needed, details will be found in module guides and on NILE.
If you are a student studying at Park or Avenue campuses, you will be asked to submit work electronically as well. You will be given guidance how to do this by your tutors. It is important that you keep the electronic receipt safe, in the same way as if it were a hard copy.
There are some assignments which will only need to be submitted in electronic form. If this is the case, you will be given instructions by your module leader. As a general rule unless told otherwise you must submit your assignment both electronically and in paper form. Each part is essential to the submission so by only submitting a paper copy and not an electronic copy (or vice versa) you will only be submitting half an assignment
The paper copy and electronic copy must be identical. Your tutor may consider the e-version, but equally they may mark the paper based version, so you need to make sure you submit the same version in both formats.
You will receive an email confirmation and the system will record the date and time you submit. The receipts will show that work has been submitted. Without a receipt there is no evidence to show that the work has been undertaken, and you may be given a “G” grade.
All e-copies must be sent by 11:59pm of the deadline day.
