Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework.
â€‹All students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include: written assignments (essays, lab reports, literature reviews), exams (MCQ, seen and unseen), practical work, portfolios, presentations (group and individual), and reflective practice/diaries. You will also be expected to complete a dissertation in your final year.
Your tutors will provide feedback on assessments within three weeks, allowing you to quickly identify your successes and the areas where you may need to put in more work. This is provided via our virtual learning environment, face-to-face and/or as written comments for coursework and one-to-one for exams. You are also welcome to arrange further meetings with staff to discuss your feedback.
