Prato assessment and exams

Assignment submission dates
Some units will have a final assignment which will need to be emailed to the relevant academic teaching the unit 4 weeks from the end of the unit.  You do not need to stay in Prato after the end of the unit as long as the assignment is submitted by the due date.

Take Home Examinations
Some units will have a take home examination instead of an invigilated exam.  Take-home examinations will be made available to students electronically, usually by uploading the examination to the unit webpage. In some units, hard copies of the examination may be made available in the last class or through the Academic Programs Coordinator.

Take-home examinations can be submitted electronically 10 days from the end of the unit. This means that you can leave Prato after your exams in other units (if any), and write your take-home exam anywhere you wish.
