P41(Nov 2020) Submission

Message from OBU:

• ACCA and OBU held a Submission: Tips and Hints webinar last Monday and students asked lots of relevant questions. The FAQ and other relevant guidance are available via the on-demand webinars.

• When students submit, the system converts the files resulting in changes in file name and sizes and some fire types.  The upload to Turnitin can also take some time (depending on how busy the Turnitin system is generally).  If students are concerned please reassure them. 

• If there are any issues during submission, please ask students to email acca@brookes.ac.uk for advice. If it is in the last 24 hours, advise students to attach their Research report and SLS as this is evidence of intention to submit, and OBU will then advise the student as to next steps.  This can be after the submission closes (as long as they tried to submit during the window).
