Guidance for Students

All important information about your programme can be found in the psychology student handbook – “Essential Reading for Psychology Students”.  In addition, for each module that you take as part of your programme, there will be a module handbook; this will be provided to you in Week 1. It is important to read these handbooks as they will explain the module, its learning outcomes, assessments and the feedback you can expect to receive.

All teaching and learning materials will be made available to you via SULIS, the University virtual learning environment, so please make sure that you can log on to this site.

 

Late Submissions or Missed Teaching Sessions

If you do not submit your course work on time or miss mandatory teaching sessions, a penalty may be applied to your grade. This is explained in each module handbook. However, if you have a good reason (such as illness) for missing a session or a late submission, you should submit an ‘M-form’ along with evidence of your extenuating circumstances. The M-Form can be completed online (deadline for M-form submission is Friday 28th April 2017, at 5pm).

 

Script Viewing Days

Following exam grades being issued, students can request to view their exam script. Some students find it helpful to review their answers to exam questions outside the exam room. Students should be aware, however, that markers do not write student feedback on exam scripts. A grade is written on the front page of each exam booklet, and the marker may write brief examiners' notes in the margins of the script.

Viewing days for scripts are Tuesday 27th June and Wednesday 28th June. To request a script viewing, please complete the form here and return it to the Departmental office, E1-026, no later than Friday 23rd June by 4pm.

 

Assignment Hand-in Procedures

The deadline time is strictly 4pm on the due date. Assignments can be handed in up to two days in advance of due date, e.g. on the Thursday or Friday before a due date of Monday.

1 HARD COPY of the assignment must be submitted into the essay boxes provided, which are located outside E1-022. Students must sign their name on the sign-in sheet provided once essay/assignment has been placed into essay box. Hard copies are not required for first year modules.

1 SOFT COPY of the assignment must be submitted on Sulis: the Subject Line must read Module Code, Assignment Title & Student ID, e.g. PS4031, Case Study, ID:0236597

Late assignments will be noted for the module leader. Please note that late assignments must be hand-delivered to E1-026 during office hours. Do not place an assignment into the submission box after the deadline. Do not leave assignments under module leaders' doors. Failure to submit one or either copies will incur a daily penalty of 5%.

Under no circumstances should you ask a member of staff to print or photocopy any part of your assignment. All coursework must be accompanied by the Coursework Cover Sheet.
