This coursework is intended to help you meet and assess your achievement of the module learning outcomes, identified below. The grade awarded will contribute to your grade for this module and your overall level and course aggregate grade. The assessment criteria are clearly set out within the coursework brief and it is in your own interests to ensure that your work addresses the assessment criteria clearly and in an appropriate manner and logical sequence. If you are unsure or unclear about any aspect of what is required of you, you should contact the coursework author or module leader straight away. Formative feedback will be provided at seminars.

The coursework will automatically be assessed by the web-based text-match tool, Turnitin UK. Only one, final version of your work may be submitted to the Drop Box. Once submitted you cannot revise your submission; you have only one opportunity to submit. Failure to submit your work to the Drop box by the submission deadline will delay assessment of your work and may result in your work being deemed a late submission and thereby subject to late submission assessment penalty.
