Turnitin Feedback Studio (known as Turnitin) is an online service provided by the University through NILE. It is used for online submission of assignments, to check submissions for Originality, and for Tutors to provide feedback. If you are asked to submit your assignment through Turnitin - you will find it in the 'Submit your Work' section of your module in NILE. This guide explains how to submit an assignment using Turnitin.
Not recommended and not supported:
You will need to submit your assignment through Turnitin as a SINGLE file. These formats can be submitted: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, PostScript, PDF, HTML, Rich text format (rtf), OpenOffice (odt), Hangul (hwp), Google Docs, and plain text.
We recommend that you submit your document in PDF format, or Microsoft Word.
You are advised to test the submission of any PDF file well before the assignment due date, as not all PDF file formats can be accepted by Turnitin, for example if the pages have been scanned as an image, rather than as text.
NOTE: If you have used tracked changes in Microsoft Word, please ensure that you remove any markup by accepting all changes, removing comments, and turning Track Changes off before submitting. You may wish to make a final copy before doing this. Please see this guidance for more information - Turn off track changes in Microsoft Word.
The file size for a Turnitin submission may not exceed 100MB or 800 pages, and the document must contain at least 20 words. An assignment must be submitted as a single file. If your file size exceeds the limit:

It’s a good idea to submit a ‘draft’ version well before your deadline, to make sure that you have no technical issues. Please check with your tutor, as some Turnitin submission points are set for one submission attempt only, And don't leave things until the last minute! Technical support is only available until 5pm, Monday-Friday, so you are strongly advised to submit your final version at least one working day before the deadline.
