If you have been successful in submitting your work to Turnitin, you will see a receipt on screen, completing the submission process.


If you don’t see the confirmation screen. You should assume your submission HAS NOT been successful. Please go back to the Turnitin assignment to check and, if necessary, submit the file again. If you continue to have problems, check whether the File format is accepted by Turnitin before logging a ticket with IT.


A receipt is also emailed to your student email account.

This email will be sent from TurnitinUK No Reply <noreply@turnitin.com> with the Subject heading ‘This is your TurnitinUK Digital Receipt’.


If you don’t receive an email receipt, please ensure you are checking the correct email account, and check your junk mail or spam folder. The email receipt may have delivered to your junk/spam mail folder.
