Submitting Assessed Essays
The following rules apply to all students taking UCL History courses.
Coursework deadlines are posted on the departmental website () and on course Moodle pages.
IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT ANY OF THE OFFICIAL DEPARTMENTAL DEADLINES, PLEASE ASK ONE OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF.
Please note that course teachers cannot grant extensions to the final deadlines listed above. Extensions can only be granted by the Chair of the Board of Examiners on the recommendation of the Departmental Tutor. He is only likely to do so in cases of illness, for which you must provide medical certification, or bereavement.
Students wishing to apply for an extension should complete a form (available from the Academic Office) and make an appointment to see the Departmental Tutor, normally no later than the Friday before the deadline. After this date, it usually only bereavements and serious illnesses that occurred on the day of the deadline, or in the weekend before it, that can be considered valid grounds for an extension.
You should aim to get your essays in well before the deadlines listed above, not least because of delays caused by faults with transport, computers, printers, photocopiers etc. Do not expect everything to work smoothly. You are expected to plan accordingly.
You are required to submit an electronic copy and two hard copies of all your written work in the History Department. Please see the coursework submission page for detailed information on how to submit your work as well as penalties.
Extenuating Circumstances and Coursework Deadline Extensions
If you wish to submit an application for consideration of extenuating circumstances relating to your performance in assessed coursework and/or examinations, then please complete an Extenuating Circumstances Form. This may be done retrospectively but should be submitted no late than the end of the examination period in the summer term.
If you wish to apply for an extension to the departmental deadline for assessed coursework, then please complete an Extension Form. Please note that such applications cannot normally be considered retrospectively. Please submit an application before the relevant deadline.
