Assessment and exams


Delivery of course work

Depending on your course of study, course work assignments are submitted in hard copy to the Registry, either by post or in person, or to your course's online submission page.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your assignment arrives at the Registry by the deadline. The submission date is the date that your assignment is received, not the date that it is posted.

When submitting an assignment you are advised to keep a record of the postage if the assignment has been posted, a receipt (issued from Reception) if the assignment has been submitted to Reception, or email confirmation if submitted online.

Submission of hard copy assignments

Hard copies of assignments are to be submitted by post or handed in at the reception desk at Rewley House. Hard copy assignments should be accompanied by a Declaration of Authorship form which is available online here or in hard copy from Rewley House reception or the Registy.

The Registry administers both the History and English Literature Admissions Tests in November each year.

Students currently registered on a Foundation Certificate with the Department are able to sit the test with us free of charge.

Former students, and those wishing to take either test as independent candidates are able to do so for an administration fee:

  • £30 for alumni of the Department
  • £60 for independent candidates

For further information, please contact the Registry.

Places are limited.
