In line with the Business School's commitment to practice-based education, a large part of the assessment will relate to your demonstration of your ability to synthesise class room learning with real life scenarios within the international tourism and hospitality industry. We will want to see that you understand the theory and have developed critical thinking skills which help you evaluate the relevance of what you have learned. To assess this range of integration of theory and skills into sound practice, we use a range of methods. You will be expected to complete one or two assessments per unit, which depends on the number of credits allocated to the unit. You will encounter many different kinds of assessment methods, for example: written exams, written assignments, portfolios, reports, individual or group oral presentations and practical skills assessment. All of which will enable you to gain valuable experience to use within the workplace.
