Submitting Assignments on the VLE

Available resources to assist with students during their time at University.

Submitting assignments on the VLE

Written assignments like essays and reports are often submitted on the VLE.

Submission points are found either in a specific module VLE site or in a special assessments site for all modules on your course.

  • Find out where the submission point is far in advance of the deadline.
  • Don't submit assignments on a mobile device.
  • Read the guidelines carefully - check the deadline, file type requirements and other information so you know what you need to do.

2023/24 academic year

Formative assignments (useful for developmental feedback on your work) are likely to be set up with Blackboard Learn Ultra (as opposed to Blackboard Original). 

Summative assignments (that count towards your grade) are likely to be set up with TurnItIn. 

Our student guide to submitting assignments explains more.
