Coursework Submission Procedure

Submission of Course Assignments

Students are required to hand in their course assignments, i.e. essays, practicals, reports, projects, etc., on or before the submission deadlines set by the lecturers. Failure to observe this requirement will result in a reduction in coursework marks. For late submissions, it is Departmental policy to impose a 5% reduction per calendar day from the total mark of each item of coursework. For instance, an assignment, which is handed in two days late, will get a 10% reduction. Moreover, any assignment submitted ten calendar days after the deadline will not be accepted for assessment and will therefore be awarded a zero mark.

Students must follow the specific submission procedures and put their course assignments in the ‘Assignment Collection Box’, which is placed in front of the enquiry counter in the Departmental General Office, Room 1023, 10/F, The Jockey Club Tower, Centennial Campus.  Submission of assignments to the Departmental General Office should be made at the following office hours during weekdays ONLY:

09:00 – 13:00 & 14:00 – 17:00

Moreover, to facilitate students in citing references in their assignments in a proper manner, the Department has produced a ‘Guidelines on the Use of Reference Materials in Course Assignments’, which is available at the Departmemt’s undergraduate website.
