Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose.
We understand that all students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, so we use a range of traditional and innovative assessment methods. These include essays, exams, reports, individual and group presentations, policy analyses, online tests, wikis, critical reviews, posters and group work. Approximately 75% of your assessments will be by coursework and the rest by exam, but this varies according to the options you choose.
Constructive feedback on your assessed work is designed to help you achieve your full potential and get the most out of your studies. Your tutors will provide this in writing, by email or in face-to-face meetings where they will help you identify your strengths as well as areas where you may need to put in more work. They can also direct you to further support if you feel you need it.
