On the Foundation Year you will be assessed through a range of methods to prepare you for your study beyond this foundation year. This will include written assignments, coursework, presentations and class-tests. Assessments on the remainder of the course give you the opportunity to display your knowledge and understanding and to develop and demonstrate your competence in subject-specific and key skills. Modules are assessed by either coursework only or a mixture of coursework and examination. Exams never count for more than 60% of the total mark for modules that include an examination. Coursework includes practical portfolios, essays, project reports, field notebooks, individual and group oral presentations and poster presentations.
