Iscuss the advantages and disadvantages of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

As the work must be submitted electronically via Turnitin, it will be checked for possible plagiarism, collusion and word counts using the appropriate software. The work must be submitted without the title, and without setting out the question in order for the word count to be checked. Failure to submit on Turnitin will result in the award of 0%. 5% per day will be deducted for every day the coursework is handed in late up to a maximum of 5 days (including weekends and Bank Holidays).

Subject to the above, the deadline is fixed and missing the deadline will result in the award of 0%. There is no such thing as an extension. Where you can demonstrate a good reason to defer, you may apply for a deferral through the Student Office. If you are granted a deferral, you must take the new assessment at the next opportunity.

You must retain a copy of your work.

Students may submit their coursework to the electronic system, Turnitin, as many times as they like prior to the deadline. Each time they will receive an Originality Report giving them the opportunity to address plagiarism/poor referencing, etc. issues up until the deadline date. Students will be required to submit a final copy by the deadline date.

Please note that the marks given for coursework during the academic year will be provisional only and will be confirmed on publication of the final results at the end of the academic year.
