Understanding what is expected
It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that he understands the assessment criteria and learning outcomes against which their work will be marked. Continual engagement with the delivery of the module is important to enable a student to gain this understanding, and to fulfil their responsibility to the learning experience of fellow students.
Students must understand what constitutes an academic offence, including plagiarism, collusion, breach of examination room regulations, and ensure that they do not commit such offences in their studies and assessments.
While anyone may occasionally suffer some problem that results in them being late for a class, it is clear that some students are persistent offenders in this respect. This behaviour is perceived by both students and staff as most disruptive, discourteous and not to be condoned.
