Extension of submission dates for assessed work

All requests for an extension to the submission date for coursework must have a good reason and must be supported by a College Tutor and/or Director of Studies, otherwise a zero mark will be awarded.

For pieces of work amounting to no more than 10% of the final mark (i.e. a primary source essay) an application should be made to the Part II Manager. The application must give sufficient reason, and it must be accompanied by written support from a College Tutor/DoS.

For pieces of work where the coursework contributes greater than 10% (i.e. the dissertation) the University Council is the only body empowered to give permission for an extension. In cases where there is a need to make such a request, the approved route is for the College Tutor/DoS to make a case to the Applications Committee.
