Penalties for Late Coursework Submission

When coursework is set, a due date for submission will be specified and there will be associated penalties for handing in work late.

The University has a uniform policy for the late submission penalty for a piece of assessed work worth 10% or more of the final module mark.

Work submitted up to 5 days after the deadline should be marked as usual, including moderation or second marking, and feedback prepared and given to the student. The final agreed mark is then reduced by the factors in the following table.

University Working Days late Mark


final agreed mark x 0.9


final agreed mark x 0.8


final agreed mark x 0.7


final agreed mark x 0.6


final agreed mark x 0.5
