Student Information

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/Unit 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 that has been signed by you and the tutor upon receipt.

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.


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.


The Scheme Board of Examiners decides on the 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.

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.

Extensions to deadlines and additional consideration

The extensions to deadlines and additional consideration process is in place to support students who have medical or personal issues which have an impact on their ability to attend teaching and undertake assessments because they occur suddenly, unexpectedly, or are severe in nature. There is no definitive list of such situations, and the College recognises that difficulties impact people in different ways. If you consider your studies are being affected by your personal circumstances, you should discuss this with your Course Tutor or the HE Office in the first instance. The earlier the College is made aware of any impacting circumstances; the earlier support options can be made available. The options available to students differ depending on the partner university or awarding organisation, please ensure you refer to the correct form for your course.
