Assessment method

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, usually a combination of exams and coursework. All students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include: •written assignments (essays, brief response questions) •exams (seen and unseen) •practical work •portfolios (including e-portfolios) •presentations (group and individual) •and reflective practice/diaries You will then complete an independent research dissertation supervised by one of your tutors in your final year. You will be given plenty of help with planning your workload as a full assessment schedule is provided at the start of each academic year. Feedback on all coursework is provided within three weeks of submitting it and may be given via Canvas (our virtual learning environment), face-to-face and/or in writing. You can always arrange one-to-one sessions with your tutors to discuss or clarify issues related to feedback as well. We believe that constructive feedback is vital in helping you identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
