When you accept an offer of a place at Craven College, you enter into a contract. Your acceptance of the offer of a place is subject to your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions set out in the document which can be found in the list below.
The Terms and Conditions apply to all Craven College students irrespective of the mode and place of their study. In the event of any inconsistency, the Terms and Conditions take precedence over any other advice or information offered by a member of Craven College staff or its publications. The Terms and Conditions may be varied by Craven College from time to time both before and after enrolment at Craven College.
Following enrolment you become entitled to use the facilities and services that Craven College provides. You also agree to abide by the College’s rules, regulations, and programme specifications. Please see the contents list below for more detailed information.
Please note that semester 1 usually starts in the 3rd week of September and the academic year usually ends in the last week of May.
ASSESSMENT SUBMISSION DETAILS
Details of assessment submission are available in the Module Handbook. Assessments must be submitted on or before the submission date. You will be given the submission details by your module tutor. Most assessments must be submitted via Turn-it-in, however for assessments where this is not suitable, a hard copy of the assessment should include a cover sheet (available on Moodle) which has been signed by you and the tutor upon receipt. The cover sheet has a tear-off slip which will act as a receipt for your assessment – you must keep this as evidence of submission of your assessment.
Your work will be marked and feedback will normally be provided within 4 weeks of the submission date. NB All marks are provisional and will be subject to internal and external quality assurance.
MISSING AN ASSESSMENT DEADLINE
If you fail to submit an assessment by the prescribed date without prior permission, a penalty will be incurred. The penalty is dependent on the Regulations approved by the Validating University or Awarding Organisation (please check) and will either be a reduction in your mark or the assessment will be deemed as a non-submission (NS). Any assessments which are handed in late, without formal approval through the HE Scheme may jeopardise your continuation on the course.
HE SCHEME BOARD OF EXAMINERS
The Scheme Board of Examiners decides on progression of individual students through Degree courses and awards Degrees and other qualifications. The Board of Examiners also decides if a reassessment opportunity is permitted and sets the reassessment deadlines.
There are two Boards of Examiners at Craven College and each has their own Terms of Reference:
Approved marks are issued within four weeks of the Board of Examiners. Students are entitled to receive indicative feedback on performance in assessed work within four weeks of the assessment deadline. It has been agreed that it is not necessary to wait until the Board of Examiners to release provisional numeric marks.
An application for extension of up to 5 days may be granted if, due to personal circumstances, you are unable to complete module assessments by the submission date. Following completion of the application, you must call the HE Team, Aireville Campus, on 01756 708 051 to arrange an appointment to submit your application.
N.B. An extension is not permitted for practical assessments, group assessments, examinations or presentations. An application for mitigation with supporting evidence must be submitted for these assessments.
THE APPLICATION MUST BE SUBMITTED PRIOR TO THE ASSESSMENT SUBMISSION DATE
An application for mitigation should be completed when, due to personal mitigating circumstances, you are unable to complete module assessments (examination, presentation or coursework). This procedure is intended to establish a consistent and fair practice for all students across the College with regard to the recording and receipt of mitigating circumstances.
N.B. You must submit your Application for Mitigation prior to the assessment submission date. In exceptional circumstances completed forms may be accepted up to 14 days after the submission date. Any information received outside of this time period will not be considered, unless you can provide evidence that you were prevented from meeting the deadline by circumstances outside your control.
Following completion of the application form you must email the form to HE@craven-college.ac.uk
Incorrectly completed application forms will not be considered, and will be returned for proper completion.
The decision will be made by the Senior Academic Quality Officer (HE), wherever possible, within three working days of receipt of your application. Your Course Tutor will be made aware of the decision. It is your responsibility to follow up the decision by emailing HE@craven-college.ac.uk . Please keep a copy of your completed application form.
