Assessment is through a balanced mixture of practical and written work including essays, reflective journals, workshop performances, full productions and oral presentations and you can expect to be tested on both your practical and theoretical knowledge and understanding. You will be encouraged to reflect critically on your learning in each assessment and use journals to reflect regularly on your personal development. There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods for any Musical Theatre 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.
