Guidelines for Essay Submissions

This is important. If you are handing in an essay, below are instructions and a checklist of questions to help ensure you have everything you need.

Guidelines for electronic submissions via Turn-It-In

  • Do you have TWO copies of your essay (one electronic, one hard copy)?
  • Is the Departmental Essay Cover Sheet (PDF) stapled to the HARD COPY?
  • Do BOTH copies have YOUR OWN cover sheet with:

    1. your student number (e.g. 1180746, your UCL ID card)
    2. the course code and title;
    3. the essay question / title; and
    4. the lecturer's name? (e.g. Professor Sacha Stern)
  • Have you followed the style guidelines as set out in the Departmental Style Sheet (PDF)?


  • Your name should ONLY appear on the Departmental Student Essay Cover Sheet attached to your HARD COPY.
  • If you require an EXTENSION, do make sure that you have discussed the revised deadline with Dr Helen Beer, Departmental Tutor, and printed the departmental Authorisation for Deferred Work Form (PDF)
  • The electronic copy of your essay will be marked and returned to you via Turn-It-In.
