Assessment method

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework. We understand that each student performs differently depending on the way they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include:

  • reports
  • essays
  • exams
  • case studies
  • summaries of e-discussions
  • group and individual presentations
  • poster presentations of research
  • practical assessments, such as mock interviews
  • records of learning
Many of our modules use formative assessment providing informal opportunities for feedback before the assessment is submitted. Your tutors will aim to provide assessment feedback within 15 working days, and will happily discuss it with you one-to-one. This is particularly important as it gives you a chance to identify your strengths as well as the areas that may need further attention. We adopt the ethos that assessments are an essential part of your learning experience. You demonstrate your progress and development to yourself and us. We have tutors and sessions in place to offer additional support in key areas if this is required.
