You must include a Reference Section but no Bibliography is required.  All submission must include a completed Submission Sheet with your Student ID and page numbers indicated on each page. Your essay is expected to be 2,250 words in length.  It is acceptable that students will submit an essay within + or – 10% of this word count. Considerably fewer words than 2,250 may indicate that your essay contains insufficient depth.  Considerably more words than 2,250 may indicate a lack of the academic discipline in selecting the appropriate material whilst remaining conciseness in your presentation. In cases where a word limit has been grossly over stepped, in fairness to other students who have adhered to the word limit, tutors will enforce the UHI Regulations regarding word counts for assessment submissions.  Your essay should be submitted using the Assignments Area in Brightspace no later than the due date given. Please contact your PAT as soon as possible should you be experiencing any specific difficulties, e.g. illness, which may impact upon your ability to meet this deadline.
