You should endeavour to ensure that the standard of presentation of your work is consistently high.
- All assessed coursework should be word-processed in a conventional 12 point font, using double spacing and 2cm margins. This is essential since you will be required to submit the file electronically to and to submit an identical paper copy to the administrator specified on your question paper and on the Moodle site.
- Number the pages of your text.
- Work should be carefully laid out, with new sections clearly marked. For more substantial pieces of work, such as Year Abroad projects or longer essays, include a contents page.
- Pay careful attention to departmental
requirements with regard to References and Bibliography, and to any
instructions that are specific to the particular module.
* Notes – whether endnotes or footnotes – must be consecutively numbered using Arabic numerals (if the default of your word-processing package is Roman numerals, find out how to change it).
- The main body of your text should be followed in all cases by a bibliography, giving precise details of all the sources (printed, electronic, and other) that you have consulted in producing your work.
- If possible, print double-sided; use
black ink and ensure that the whole text is legibly printed. Use white paper.
Create a title page, giving the following information:
- the Module Code and Title (e.g. GERM 1105 Introduction to Modern German Literature).
- Your student number – from your ID card – or your examinations candidate number if it is available. Do not write your name on your text, as it must be anonymously marked.
- The title of the specific assignment and the question number and title of the question(s) answered.
- The actual number of words used. This includes all quotations and references (footnotes and endnotes) but excludes the bibliography and any textual appendices.
