You can still manually check your digital receipt to confirm the submission, advice on how to do this is listed below.

You can check that you have submitted successfully by returning to the assignment area, your digital receipt will be stored here. You will notice that the email address is different to your University one, please disregard this, all emails will be sent to your University of Leeds email account.

Turnitin submission issues

We are experiencing an issue with Turnitin where students are unable to submit to assignments after the due date.

The issue is affecting other institutional user and Turnitin are working on a resolution. In the meantime if you need to make a submission after the due date, or have an extension where the due date has passed send the file to your school who can submit it on your behalf.

This issue does not impact on submissions made before the due date.
