UCD offers a number of student support services that all students should be aware of.
The links below provide a range of information and resources to help you complete your degree.
If you cannot find what you are looking for please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call into the School office in G201 Newman Building
If you miss a component of continuous assessment during the trimester, you should contact the module coordinator immediately and provide the module coordinator any documentation in support of your extenuating circumstances.
If you miss the final exam, you should follow the procedure outlined in the UCD’s policy on extenuating circumstances and submit the necessary documentation online to the relevant College Office. For more information please go to this page.
In the case of missing an exam, you should also contact the relevant module coordinator as soon as possible.
Please note that the School follows the UCD’s policy on extenuating circumstances as to what we do and do not consider grounds for extenuating circumstances.
The module coordinator will then tell you how to make up for the missing component if they deem acceptable the documentation provided.
Unless otherwise stated by the module coordinator, modules will follow UCD’s policy on late submission of essays and projects.
The policy requires:
1. The due date for each item of coursework must be clearly indicated to students.
2. Coursework must be submitted electronically via Brightspace no later than 3 pm on the due date.
3. Coursework received at any time within the two weeks following the due date will be graded but a penalty will apply. Coursework submitted at any time up to one week after the due date will have the grade awarded reduced by one grade point (or the percentage mark reduced by 5%). Coursework submitted more than one week but up to two weeks after the due date will have the grade reduced by two grade points (or the percentage mark reduced by 10%).
4. Coursework received more than two weeks after the due date will not be accepted.
5. Where coursework is submitted late due to unanticipated exceptional or extenuating
circumstances, students must follow the appropriate procedures for extenuating circumstances
(see previous section).
Plagiarism is academic theft and is taken very seriously by the School of Economics and UCD in general. The School’s policy on plagiarism can be found here, while UCD comprehensive regulations and procedures can be found at this website.
