Assessment and feedback

Suggested essay questions for everyone (third years and MA students) are here. You can also write on other topics, but you need to get your question approved by me.

Third year undergraduates
You have two assessment options.

Option 1
One coursework essay (3,000 – 4,000 words)
Deadline for submission: Thursday 26th April 2018 (12 noon)
Two hour exam, writing two essays (this is a seen exam and questions will be released towards the end of the semester)

Option 2
One long essay (4,500 – 6,000 words)
Deadline for approval: Friday 20th April 2018 (12 noon) – this is a change to the original deadline to take into account the impact of the industrial action earlier this semester.
Deadline for submission: Wednesday 30th May 2018 (12 noon)

Remember, if you want to take the long essay option, you need to get approval from me. Single Honours students can do up to three long essays across the academic year, and Dual Honours students can do up to two long essays across the academic year. You can find more information about this in the third-year handbook.

MA students
One long essay (4,000 – 6,000 words) or
Two short essays (2,000 – 3,000 words)
Deadline for submitting all essays: 4th June 2018

There is information about essay writing and other such stuff in the MA handbook.

I am very happy to read and discuss essay plans and essay drafts for everyone. You can email me to make an appointment or come to my office hours. You can also just knock on my door.

Nearer the essay deadline, I will use doodle poll so that people can book appointments with me outside office hours without endless emailing back and forth.
