Assessment method

Through practical and written work, including workshop performances and full productions, essays, portfolios and seminar presentations. All practical work in dance demands theoretical underpinning, so most modules will require either a piece of writing or an oral presentation. You will reflect on your learning in each assessment and summarise your development regularly. There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods for any Dance module on this degree, though one of the optional Language modules is part-assessed by written examinations, should you choose to learn a language as an integrated element of the programme.
