Assessment method

We want to ensure you have the best learning experience possible and a supportive and nurturing learning community. That’s why we’re introducing a new block model for delivering the majority of our courses, known as Education 2030. This means a more simplified timetable where you will study one subject at a time instead of several at once. You will have more time to engage with your learning and get to know the teaching team and course mates. You will receive faster feedback through more regular assessment, and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life. A mixture of large group sessions, tutorials, on line resources and formative assessments are used. Students are given feedback throughout the course to develop and improve their technical knowledge, skills and understanding. Emphasis is placed on the application of technical understanding to case based and impact focused scenarios through the use of assessments.
