Coursework policies
1. All coursework submitted must include the signed coversheet
2. Students MUST keep a copy of all submitted work for reference purposes prior to the original
being handed in and returned. This will provide proof that the work was completed, in the event
that the work goes astray.
3. All work must be submitted in the mode instructed by the Course Leader.
4. Work submitted under the student’s ID must only be the work of that student. All information
sources must be acknowledged, by providing a reference to the source both within the text and in
the form of a reference list and/or bibliography at the end of the submission. Not to do so is
plagiarism, which is academic misconduct and will be dealt with as set out in the rules and
regulations of MAHSA University.
5. You should provide your word count at the end of your report or essay. This should exclude your
abstract, contents page, reference list and/or bibliography and appendices. You must not exceed
the permitted word count by more than 10%. If your work is significantly shorter, you will probably
have failed to provide the level of content required.
6. If you submit work after the submission deadline, you will fail in the coursework component.
However, the Course leader may comment on the quality of the work for learning purposes. The
only exception to this is if you experience very serious circumstances which prevented you
submitting your work on time, in which case you can apply for “extenuation”. For more
information, you may refer to your lecturer.
7. You must Turnitin your report. The maximum permitted level of Similarity index is 30%. But
ensure that a single or a few sources do not contribute to this 30%.
