Assessments and Exams


All courses involve continuous assessments as a means of determining what you can do.  However depending on the structure of course, you may also have to sit prelims and end of year/semester exams. Each unit/module tutor will explain to you the type of assessments you will have to do, deadlines for assessments to be submitted, how to submit your assessment and dates for exams.

Referencing and plagiarism

Students are expected to make sure that their work is their own and that they reference sources used in their work.  Copying someone else's work, letting someone copy your work or not referencing a resource you have used is regarded as plagiarism and can be penalised by tutors, markers and examiners.  Don't worry though ... there are lots of online resources and support from staff to help you get to grips with the UHI referencing style.  The essential student skills toolkit and the library information pages are a great place to start.
