Important notes

  • Please be aware that the submission of Turnitin assignments varies by course and by module, so not all options will be available to all students. For example, you may not be able to resubmit assignments or to see originality reports if your tutor has disabled these functions.
  • If you're unsure about what you need to submit then contact your tutor and ask for help.
  • Always download a copy of your receipt after submitting. This is the safest way to prove you have submitted.
  • If you are still unable to submit, see the FAQ I can't submit my assignment! linked to below:
