Information to HE Students on University of South Wales Qualifications only

Do you have assessment deadlines approaching?  Exams to revise for? Feel that you need support to meet the assessment deadlines?

If you have answered yes to the above questions, then please see below support that you may be able to access to avoid non submission.

For students on courses leading to awards from University of Central Lancashire and University of Cumbria: you are subject to the rules of the relevant awarding institution.  Please contact your Programme Leader for details.

Lancaster University and Pearson students please refer to your own Moodle notification. 

 

EXTENSIONS

In the first instance and for guidance please speak to your programme leader or module tutor.

 

LATE SUBMISSIONS

It is still possible to submit your assignment up to 5 working days after the submission deadline, however the piece of work will be capped at 40%. 

 

EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES

If something beyond your control prevents you from submitting your assessment on time or attending an examination, then you can apply for Extenuating circumstances.  Your application must be supported with third party, independent evidence and submitted within 5 working days of the missed deadline/exam. You need to apply directly to University of South Wales on their forms, your course team can support you with this. Information about these process and relevant forms can be located on Academic Regulations page on Moodle, under the University of South Wales section.
