If my teaching and learning sessions are disrupted and not rescheduled, will I be assessed on those topics in examinations or assessments?
For your examinations and assessments, we will ensure that you are not disadvantaged if any learning or teaching has been missed due to strike action. We will also ensure that we maintain our academic quality and high standards.
Could my module marks be affected if learning has been missed?
Faculties or departments will assess if industrial action has impacted on the learning and assessment of each module. We will ensure that students are not disadvantaged if learning has been missed on specific modules due to strike action.
Will I be entitled to an extension for coursework, dissertations or other submissions of work due to industrial action?
Deadlines set for submitting work, including dissertations, still apply as normal. Your faculty or department will aim to maintain assessment deadlines but will also look at whether there any instances in which revised deadlines may be appropriate for you.
Assessments due during industrial action will not be granted automatic extensions.
What if an in-class assessment (including oral examinations and presentations) does not take place because of industrial action?
If an in-class assessment is cancelled because of strike action and/or action short of a strike, faculties or departments will try to ensure that the assessment is rescheduled or assessed by other means where possible.
In some cases, it may not be possible for in-class assessment to be rescheduled, in which case the module will be assessed without the mark for the cancelled assessment (with other marks being rescaled proportionately).
I'm a postgraduate research student. What if the oral examination for my thesis is disrupted?
It is unlikely that oral examinations will be affected and we will endeavour to ensure that these take place at the appropriate time. If you have any concerns, please contact your supervisor in the first instance and they can then engage with local colleagues and central services as necessary.
Will my work be assessed/marked within the normal turnaround period?
Our aim is that all work will be assessed within the usual turnaround times. However, we appreciate that some assessments and feedback may be delayed if they coincide with a period of strike action and/or action short of a strike.
Will my examination dates for assessments change?
Assessment will go ahead as planned during industrial action. You are expected to complete all assessments and submit all assignments, in accordance with the university's Academic Regulations. Normal penalties will apply to coursework that is not submitted by the appropriate deadlines.
Unless informed otherwise, all deadlines for coursework will remain and you should plan to submit your work accordingly.
If some submission deadlines and supervision sessions are affected by strike action, your faculty or department will inform you of the changes.
Will my hand-in deadlines for assessments change?
Unless informed otherwise, all deadlines for assessments will remain and you should plan to submit your work accordingly.
If some submission deadlines are supervision sessions are affected by strike action, your faculty or department will inform you of the changes.
Could my progression to the next academic year be affected by industrial action?
We have put arrangements in place to ensure that this industrial action does not impact on your studies and progress through your degree.
Could my final degree classification be affected by industrial action?
No, your award will not be affected. All final module marks will be used in the degree algorithm, as normal. There are no exceptions to the award rules. Classification boundaries will not change as a consequence of industrial action. The high quality and integrity of degrees from King's College London will not be compromised.
