Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, usually a combination of exams and coursework.
We acknowledge that all students perform differently depending on the way they are assessed. This is why we use a range of assessment methods and a combination of exams (40%) and coursework (60%) for each module, though some practical modules are assessed by coursework only.
Exams may include multiple choice, short answer, problem-based learning and essay questions. Coursework may be in the form of fieldwork/practical reports, data handling, GIS maps, oral presentations, poster presentations, group discussions, essays or practical skills evaluations. Some assignments are done in groups.
Your final year research project will be assessed by literature review and scientific write-up.
