Submission of course work
The majority of course work (home works, project reports etc.) must be submitted anonymously via the Hicks Student Support. Exceptions include tutorial work in year 1.
All course work must have the relevant cover sheet attached. You can obtain a cover sheet for a specific assignment from this link:
You will need to use your MUSE login details. Print out the cover sheet and attach this to the front of your work. Cover sheets are available from a week before the submission date.
Work can be handed in to F10 during opening hours or at any time the Hicks Building is open via the metal box outside F10.
Submission of coursework is no longer confirmed by email.
Please note that cover sheets are specific to a given item of course work and student. If you get a friend to print out a cover sheet your marks may not be credited to you.
If you have any problems accessing a coversheet, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or drop into F10.
When marked, student work is available for collection from F10.
