Assignments and Assessment Procedures

Please follow the instructions given in your unit outline about the submission and return of assignments and other assessed work. Arrangements can vary from unit to unit, and not all assessments are handled in the same way.

If you contact the Undergraduate or Postgraduate offices at any time, always quote your full name, Student ID and unit code.

Submitting assignments

You must always use a Linguistics Assignment Coversheet , signing the plagiarism declaration every time. Please write or type your name IN CAPS and underline your family name. You must use your full name as it appears on your student card. Fill in every section of the form and make sure you have the correct unit code, convenor and assignment number. It is your responsibility to make sure that you keep an electronic copy or photocopy of every assignment you submit.

  • Undergraduate
    Assignment Coversheet
  • The locked essay boxes for all undergraduate units are located on the ground floor inside the Faculty of Human Sciences Undergraduate Student Services Centre. All assignments are to be placed in these boxes. Evening students can lodge their assignments in the single essay box located outside the entrance to C3A - to be used only when the building is locked. When an assignment is due for a particular unit, there will be a labelled assignment box allocated to it. If there is no labelled box, assignment should be submitted in the "All Other Undergraduate" assignment box. The boxes are cleared at 10.00 am Monday to Friday and again at 4pm only on Friday.

Some convenors may ask students to submit their assignments electronically, through ilearn.

  • Postgraduate
  • The majority of units are to be submitted electronically through iLearn. Please refer to your unit outline or consult the unit convenor for further details.

    Hard copy assignments must be submitted in the box on Level 5 in C5A and are registered in and date stamped on arrival. Assignments retrieved first thing in the morning will be date stamped the previous working day. Unit convenors will advise you of their due date. Anything stamped on the Monday morning may still be considered late. So, if in doubt, check with your convenor.

Collecting marked assignments

Most marked Postgraduate assignments are returned electroncially. Marked hard copy assignments can be collected from either the Faculty of Human Sciences Undergraduate Student Services Centre (C3A ground floor) or Postgraduate Office (C5A563). Some convenors will return assignments in class. When collecting a marked assignment, please have your Student ID card ready and tell us the unit code . (In very large classes it can help to know the name of your tutor as assessments are sometimes sorted according to who marked them.)

A group assignment will be returned to the first group member who comes to collect it. It is up to group members to make arrangements for informing each other about the result and sharing the returned assignment.
