Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework. We recognise that all students perform differently depending on how they are being assessed, which is why we offer a variety of assessment methods. These include exams (seen and unseen), as well as coursework in the form of essays, reports, posters, critiques of a paper or media item, peer presentations or small-group work to devise a public health strategy. There will be a workplace-based project in Level 5 of your degree and a dissertation in Level 6 which both require extensive independent study. Much of your feedback will be provided electronically via Canvas (our virtual learning environment) within 21 days of submission. We believe that constructive feedback is vital in helping you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
