Assessment method

The focus in all assignments in on analysis and argumentation. These skills will be assessed using a variety of different exercises including essays, book reviews, primary source analysis, presentations and contributions to online discussions. Some modules also have exams, however in the first year these never account for more than 30% of a module mark, with this rising to 50% in the second and third year. In the final year of your degree a great deal of emphasis is placed on individual research-based modules.
