Word limit: The word count limit is 3,000 words. There is no fixed penalty for exceeding the word count, but you must know that the examiner will not consider any work after the +10% word count tolerance has been reached within the allocated marks. You may, therefore, be penalised for a failure to be concise and for failing to conclude your work within the word count specified.

Weighting: 100%

Late Submission Policy

The policy for late submissions is described in detail at the academic regulations document, page 40: Please read carefully to avoid any penalties.

Similarity check

You are strongly advised to use Turnitin to check the similarity count with other sources and avoid plagiarism.  You will find a link to Turnitin on the module Moodle site (please include the link), allowing you to submit your work and check it before submitting it through the usual submission portal.

Final suggestions

  • The assignment should be word-processed and double line spaced. Do not use bullet points
  • Use Times New Roman 12 point (this font and size).
  • State the word count used in your document.
  • On each sheet, ensure you have page numbers in the format ‘Page x of y’ – see the footer in this assignment for an example.
  • All work should be referenced in Harvard-style format – there are hand-outs available online at the library website if you are unsure about this.
  • Do not use Wikipedia, Google, Google Books, or Yahoo – the former is not peer-assessed, the work is unreliable, and the latter are search engines. Do not rely too heavily on Internet sources. There is no need for a content page.
  • Use contemporary academic textbooks and journal articles (newspapers are not articles); use post-year 2000 academic work.

Number of Attempts

Under the University Academic Regulations students have two opportunities to be assessed and to pass this module. If a student has not achieved a pass in this module after the resit, no further opportunities are available

University Regulations

The word limit is for your coursework assignment and does not cover material submitted as an appendix. Material submitted as an appendix provides background for your coursework, but it will not be marked unless specified in the brief. Also, you must cross-refer between the main text of your assignment and any appendices to demonstrate the linkage. The Appendices do not constitute additional material unrelated to that included in the body of your assignment. If you do not refer to this work in the appendix, this included work in the Appendices is not marked.

Your References page will not be included in the word count, but where you quote within the assignment (e.g., Smith and Jones (2010) identified that…) will be included in the word count.

Since your work is submitted in electronic format, you are required to declare the number of words used in your assignment. A random number of course works will be selected to check for adherence to the word limit.
