Guidance for the presentation of Taught Dissertations for UG and PGT Provision
Guidance for the presentation of Taught Dissertations for undergraduate and postgraduate provision is available below:
- Guidance for the Presentation of Taught Dissertations for UG and PGT Provision (updated January 2016)
This guidance has been revised to reflect the introduction of two policies:
- The ‘Policy on Submission of Work for Summative Assessment on Taught Programmes’ states that: “all typed summative assessment, including dissertations, should be submitted online and subjected to plagiarism detection software, where appropriate” and that “Schools may specify instances where the use of online submission and/or plagiarism detection software is inappropriate. Details of the alternative arrangements in these specific instances must be published to students”. The expectation across the University is therefore that dissertations are produced and submitted electronically, and the new version of the Guidance reflects this.
- In addition, the ‘Policy on Additional Costs incurred by Students on UG and PGT programmes’ has been introduced, leading to the decision that, should Schools require hard copy, bound dissertations to be produced, the cost of doing so should be borne by the School. This requirement has also been reflected in the new Guidance.
