School of Engineering and Informatics (for staff and students)

Coursework submission

Coursework submitted in hardcopy must be attached to a Coursework Submission Cover Sheet.

Coursework submitted electronically must include a Coursework Declaration.

Your submission should be anonymous and identified only by your candidate number. Do not write your name anywhere on your work or on the cover sheet / declaration.

In submitted coursework all sources used must be cited appropriately to avoid plagiarism. All work, unless explicitly labelled otherwise, must be submitted individually; similar/identical submissions will be investigated for collusion. The Academic Office has published some excellent, general advice to students on how to avoid plagiarism and collusion, including definitions of the terms plagiarism and collusion.

All assignments, whether they are formally assessed or not, must be submitted to the Engineering and Informatics School Office, unless otherwise indicated. Please look out for any announcements about submission location. Any assignment that has not been entered on the electronic submission system will count as a non-submission and will normally attract a fail mark.

Students should note that the School of Engineering and Informatics has adopted the following policy regarding re-submission of assessed coursework assignments.

No re-submission of assignments will be permitted after the submission deadline. Prior to the submission deadline, resubmission is permissible.

Note that this policy applies to both submission via the School Office and electronic submission.

Submission deadlines and examination timetables can be found on your Sussex Direct pages.

No work can be accepted more than 7 days after the submission deadline.

If you feel you have compelling evidence of exceptional circumstances for submitting late or for impaired performance, please contact the Student Life Centre.

It is important that you organise your time effectively so that all assessed work – especially your dissertation – is submitted on time. Note that failure of your computer or loss of data on a disk is not regarded as an acceptable reason for late submission. So if your assignments require the use of computers, either for programming or document preparation, please make sure you are not dependent on them, particularly when submission deadlines are close.
