Assessment method

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose. All students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include exams (seen/unseen, multiple choice tests, short answer questions), written work (essays), individual verbal presentations, practical/lab reports, a placement report, a poster display and a dissertation. Final year option modules vary in assessment from 100% course work to 100% exams. You will receive feedback on your coursework within three weeks of submitting it and your personal tutor will give constructive advice and discuss any issues with you.
