Turnaround times for marks and feedback

Feedback Timeframe – Coursework

Feedback to students is normally given within 3 working weeks of the coursework submission deadline (excluding student vacation periods, i.e. Christmas, Easter and summer breaks). The University recognises that there are exceptional situations in which the 3 week turnaround is not possible due to externally imposed constraints. Exceptions may be made through discussion with Faculty Assistant Deans for Academic Development.

Feedback to students should be given in time to inform subsequent and related coursework and examination assessments.

Please see the ‘Resources’ section for ‘Achieving the 3 week turnaround’ document for further information on addressing the challenges, emerging good practice and feedback strategies, to respond to the University’s expectations to turnaround feedback on assessment within three weeks.

Feedback Timeframe – Examinations

Feedback to students should be given in time to inform subsequent and related coursework and examination assessments.
