2.2 Additional information
This is a Doctor of Business Administration module. Students at this level of university study are expected to be capable of independent
learning. Your module tutors will deliver the weekly lecture schedule and take you through the workshops. You are however expected to be aware
that you are responsible for your learning.Your module Coordinator and your module tutors will deliver quality of service and teaching to you and they will be prepared to assist in case
you run into difficulties. You must however understand that you will not be treated as undergraduates who are just experiencing university
education for the first time in their life. Professional Doctorate is one of the topmost level of academic attainment and requires you to behave
maturely and study diligently with minimum supervision.
In addition to your module delivery booklet, you are given access to the Doctor of Business Administration Programme Handbook where you will
find detailed information relating to problems you are likely to encounter. You are advised to read your Programme Handbook thoroughly and
understandably. Your Handbook is available on your DBA Moodle on the University webpage.
Here are some useful hints:2.2.1 Extenuation: How to apply for extenuating circumstances: NOTE your lecturer or your module coordinator cannot authorise this for you, it
will be a waste of time sending endless emails to them requesting an extenuation. What you need to do is to consult your DBA Programme Handbook
where the details of the procedure for extenuation are explained. Basically you will need to go on to the appropriate university website,
download the appropriate forms, complete the forms and send off to the appropriate university team who will process your form for assessment. It
is however expected of you to inform both your module coordinator and your module tutor what you may have done.
2.2.2 Short extension: this facility is available for a few days extension. Should you need a few extra days to complete your assignment, your
module coordinator is the appropriate personnel to contact. You will make your request to your module coordinator with credible evidence (e.g
Medical) to support your claim. Your Module coordinator will assess your situation and decide whether or not to grant you an extension.Note that extensions without credible evidence will normally carry a penalty of 10% markdeduction from the total mark you may have been awarded
in the module.
2.3 Technical problems relating to enrolment, inclusion on turnitin or other IT problems must be directed to ITDS ( you will find ITDS contact
details in your DBA handbook). They are in the best position to resolve your technical problems. Your module lecturer or module coordinator does
not have the technical expertise to resolve IT problems for you.
2.4 Assignment submission and results: if you have submitted an assignment and you have not received your result whilst your colleagues had
already received theirs, your module coordinator will be able to provide you with information. So contact your module coordinator
2.5 Personal Tutor: if you have a personal academic tutor, he/she will be happy to listen to you if you have personal problems bothering you
which may affect your performance. Personal tutors will be able to direct you to the appropriate university department who can help you.
