Assessment Methods:
Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework. We acknowledge that all students perform differently depending on the way they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. Half of your assessments will be coursework in the form of essays, portfolios, short written pieces, independent studies and dissertations. The rest of your assessment is by seen and unseen exam. Exam questions are available two weeks before the start of seen exams so you have the chance to prepare fully for them. Your tutors will provide feedback on coursework assessments within 15 days of submission via Canvas, face-to-face or as written comments. We believe constructive feedback is vital in helping you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
