Assessment method

Teaching includes lectures, seminars, tutorials and directed independent learning (self-study). Assessment includes assignments, reports, presentations and formal written examinations. The Aircraft Maintenance Operations module (which contains a significant group project element) and Individual Project module are assessed by coursework only. If you are a direct entrant student who has no previous experience of higher education (HE) in the UK then the style of the delivery and learning on this course may be rather alien to you. This will be especially so if the only learning you have completed since leaving school has been through vocational training courses. Those who have progressed from a Kingston University foundation degree will have had some experience of HE but the delivery style of the top-up and what is expected of you in terms of learning is quite different to what you will have experienced on the foundation degree; the foundation degree is actually delivered very much like a vocational training course.
