In addition to attending lectures, for some modules you have to complete practical work set by the lecturer, called coursework.
It is important to realise that completing coursework for a module is an important part of taking that module, even though the mark awarded for the module may be based on the written exam alone. However, for some modules the marks for coursework will contribute to the final mark for the module.
If you are having difficulty completing your coursework on time, discuss the problem with your Tutor or the Lecturer who will try to find ways to help. Do not wait in the hope that the problem will go away of its own accord.
How do I submit my coursework? (Including policies on deadlines and late submission)
Online tool for submitting coursework (KEATS)
Normally, all formally assessed coursework is to be submitted online via KEATS (with the exception of coursework that is likely to be larger than 100mb or cannot be uploaded as a file or several files).
If you have any problems using KEATS you should contact the College IT Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 7848 8888.
Deadlines for coursework
The deadlines for any coursework are detailed in the relevant module area on KEATS. Also deadlines will be advertised on the students Google Calendar. Deadlines must be adhered to: coursework will be considered as 'late' as soon as the deadline has passed. You must take the possibility of a delay due to technical errors into account when working to the deadline.
There is a 24 hour window after a coursework deadline when coursework can still be handed in, but any mark will be capped at the pass mark. After that 24 hour period late work will not be marked unless an approved Mitigating Circumstances Form (MCF) applies. Forms are available from the College's Mitigating Circumstances webpages and should be submitted to the Programme Administrator, together with any accompanying documentary evidence. Some lecturers may allow approved late coursework submissions to be completed via KEATS, whilst others will wish to make other arrangements: please check this directly with the lecturer.
