GEOP810 is an individualised unit of study. To successfully complete the unit, you must complete the learning contract negotiated with your supervisor at a standard of performance that is appropriate to postgraduate study.
Assessment will be determined in the learning contract but needs to reflect the value of the unit as a 4cp postgraduate research unit. The standard suggested is 5,000 words for a 4cp postgraduate unit. Suggested configurations include study options A, B, C or D, as detailed above. Students need to select one of these four study options.
Assessment of your performance in GEOP810 will be agreed in your learning contract and marking criteria will be available through iLearn. You should keep a copy of your learning contract and ensure that your supervisor has a signed copy of the contract.
All assignments must be submitted directly to your university supervisor via email as a PDF or word document. Scheduling of your submissions will be negotiated with your supervisor, but will be required to be finalised within four weeks of the final examination meeting in the semester of offer. You must keep a clean electronic copy of your assignments.
In GEOP810 you will negotiate the schedule for assignment submissions with your supervisor. In the event that you are likely not to meet a deadline, you should discuss this with your supervisor in a regular meeting or via email and request an appropriate extension before the deadline falls. Any such request should be accompanied with appropriate documentation and explanation. If no extension is granted, and an assignment is submitted late, 10% will be deducted for each day late.
