In Hub modules will have an assignment drop-box set up which can be accessed through the menu link to Assessments. The assignment drop-boxes are set up and administered by the Academic Administration, and not by the tutor for that module. In addition to a link to the Assignment dropbox, you will see a link to the QMU Assessment Regulations.   


Please note: To ensure any submitted file can be successfully submitted, students are requested to minimise the length of the filenames. We recommend filenames take the following format:

  • [Matriculation Number].docx
  • For example: 01234567.docx

User guides The following resources are here to help students with locating and submitting to the assignment dropbox. There are two different types of submission drop-boxes which can be differentiated by their icons. Please select the applicable guide below:
