Assessment method

Formative assessment Each module contains at least one piece of practice or ‘formative’ assessment for which you receive feedback. Formative assessments are developmental and do not count towards your overall module mark. Summative assessment As you will be able to personalise your degree by choosing elective modules to suit your needs, we cannot provide a precise break-down of your assessments. Typically, your assessment will be designed to reflect the kind of activities you may be asked to carry on in the workplace, either individually or as part of a team. For example, writing reports, analysing data, preparing strategies and presentations. You’ll also submit different types of coursework and sit written exams as part of the assessment for some modules. Apart from receiving feedback for your formative assessment, you will also receive feedback for your coursework and practical exams, and upon request, for your written examinations. Here is the assessment breakdown for the core modules: First year (level 4): 50% coursework 25% written exams 25% oral assessment Second year (level 5): 80% coursework 15% written exams 5% oral assessment Third year (level 6): 65% coursework 35% oral assessment Please see our website for detailed breakdown of assessments:
