General Instructions
Create a group of 4 people (self selected). If you fail to join a group, go back to your TA
maximum by the 3rd week to assign you to a group. Each group should submit the
1. Written report in a binder (1 hard copy)
2. 1 soft copy submitted via turnitin
3. Turn it in Originality Report

and contribution form (who did what)
The format of the submitted report should be as follows:
1. Be word-processed.
2. Be submitted on A4.
3. Be double spaced.
4. Font 12, Arial
5. The number of words circa 4000-4500 (excluding title page, contents page,
acknowledgements, diagrams, tables, appendices and references) in your
submission form, if the word limit is exceeded by 5 % the work will receive a
mark of ZERO.
This coursework covers ILOS 4, 5,6,7,8 and 9 as per the module specs.

This project should be your own work. You should make reference to the literature but
the report should contain your own ideas, based on your understanding of the problem
and the analysis you have undertaken. It should be specific not general.
Do not pass off the work of others as your own. It is you that is being examined. We
want to see your understanding, your ability, your ideas, etc. Cite references correctly
but do not be over dependent on them. You should aim for a Turnitin similarity index of

perhaps no more than 10%. Less and you will not have been embedding your work in
the literature. More and you will be over-dependent on it.
Do not have someone else write the work for you. This can be detected and will be
severely penalised.
If academic misconduct is suspected, it will be investigated thoroughly and it is likely to
be treated as a Major Offence under the Universitys Examination and Assessment
Regulations (see paras 10.17- 10.32).
Do not start working on the project on the last week before submission. You will have to
plan for the tasks needed to submit this project early enough. Allocate different tasks
across different weeks of the semester and do not crowd them all on the last week
before submission.

Coursework Reassessment
Students who will re-sit the coursework could do the project individually (word
