Assessment method

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose. We believe that all students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include essays, analytical exercises, portfolios of written work, an optional dissertation, peer presentations and formal exams. In some final year modules, you can choose whether you want to be assessed by exam or written essay. Throughout your course you will be given regular constructive feedback, which is particularly useful in helping you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
