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.

    Hard copy assignments must be submitted in the box marked Linguistics Postgraduate Assignments in the FOHS Student Centre on the Ground Floor in C3A. They are date stamped and registered when the box is cleared. Unit convenors will advise you of their due date. 

Collecting marked assignments

Most marked Postgraduate assignments are returned electroncially. Marked hard copy assignments can be collected from the FOHS Student Centre (C3A ground floor). 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.
