For information about deadlines for the submission of titles and final assessed essays, extension requests, penalties for late submission, the presentation of essays, word limits, the return of work, and plagiarism and cheating, please consult the PAIS undergraduate handbook

NB. Assessed essays form one method of examination for the module, and do not substitute for non-assessed Term Essays. You may write an assessed essay on a topic you have covered in a Term Essay (although you may wish to discuss the pros and cons of this with your seminar tutor). But there should be no significant overlap between any assessed essays you submit for this or any other module, and no significant overlap between any assessed essay and any exam answer.
