Help, I can’t hand my work in

Coursework is part of university life and whilst we understand that you will always try your best to achieve your deadlines, we know that sometimes things are out of your control. In some of these circumstances you can apply for Mitigating Circumstance which can either give you an extension on deadlines or mean that your marker will take into consideration your current situation when grading your work. It’s really important that you find our whether you qualify for Mitigating Circumstance before you submit as submitting your work means you are fit to sit and will be grading on the work you have sent. Contact our Advice Team for more information.

I have been told I have plagiarised, what do I do?

Plagiarism is a big worry for students when you submit your work via Turn It In, it will give you a percentage of the plagiarism found within your work, we recommend you checking through before you submit. If you have been found guilty of plagiarism then please reach out to our Advice Team who will be able to support you through your university hearing offering you the best advice on the course to take.
