LJMU recognises that all students perform differently depending on how they are assessed. That's why we use a combination of assessment methods, including written assignments, exams, practical work, individual and group presentations, portfolios, reflective logs and a dissertation. Assessments are planned across the programme so that you can manage your workload. Constructive feedback will help you to identify your strengths and areas requiring further improvement. This will be provided regularly throughout your studies.
