Due date

The due date for your assessment is based on when you commenced your course of study and your mode of study. That is, for full-time students, the IFN001 assessment is to be submitted no later than three months from the commencement date of your course, whilst part-time students have six months from the date of commencement into your course. You will receive a Welcome email from the AIRS Coordination team with your specific due date.

We recommend you complete the assessment as early as possible to gain the maximum benefit in preparing your literature review.

Please email us at with any queries about your assessment.
