General Guidance

Your assignment should be word typed processed (handwritten assignments are not accepted), using Times New Roman size 12 font, double

spaced, with numbered pages and your student number printed as a footer on every page.

The word limits stated for this assignment excludes the reference list at the end of the assignment but includes all text in the main body of the

assignment (including direct quotations, in-text citations, footnotes, tables, diagrams and graphs).

Please be aware that exceeding the word count limit will affect the academic judgement of the piece of work and may result in the award of a

lower mark.

Appendices are not considered a supplement thus will not be assessed as part of the content of the assignment. As such, they will not contribute to

the grade awarded, however it may be appropriate to use an Appendices section for any material which is a useful reference for the reader. Please

note that appendices are not included in the word count.

The majority of references should come from primary sources (e.g., journal articles, conference papers, reports, etc.) although you can also utilise

area specific textbooks. You must ensure that you use the University of Suffolk’s Harvard style of referencing.

Please indicate the word count length at the end of your assignment.
