Assessment methods vary depending on the modules you take, but are mostly a combination of exams and coursework, though some are via coursework only. Exams may be multiple choice, short answer, interpretative, problem-based learning or essay-based. Some modules assess practical competence. Applied Biomedical Science students complete a portfolio demonstrating competence to practice.
Coursework assessments may include phase tests, practical reports, data handling, oral presentations, poster presentations, group discussions, essays, portfolios or the evaluation of your practical skills and most are based on individual assignments. Feedback is normally provided within three weeks of submitting coursework and may be via Canvas (our virtual learning environment), face-to-face or in writing. We believe that constructive feedback is vital in helping you identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
