Extensions  are  permitted  only  in  exceptional  circumstances  and  at  the  discretion  of  the  module coordinator. Extensions must be applied for in advance of a submission date using the appropriate form. Request forms should be  fully  completed  and  returned  to  the  School  office  for  the  attention  of  the  module  coordinator. Forms for late submissions can be obtained outside Room E001 or downloaded through the link above.

This is not advised as Schools will have established a schedule of deadlines to ensure your workload is spread appropriately. Late submissions will generally only be accepted when it has been requested in advance and if there are genuine supporting reasons. Some modules may not allow it, if subsequent work depends on an assignment being completed by a particular deadline. The module coordinator will inform students via course materials if this is the case. For  those  assignments where  no specific rule  has  been  established, and  a  late  submission  has  been  requested  and approved, the general University penalties will apply. 

Plagiarism is the use of other people's ideas or words in presented work, without clearly acknowledging the source of that information. Details of the UCD plagiarism policy are available here. Additional helpful information on plagiarism and how to avoid it is available in the Student Code and  UCD  Library  Guide to   Avoiding   Plagiarism
