Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework. We acknowledge that all students perform differently depending on how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of innovative assessment methods. These include exams (seen/unseen), essays, log books and diaries, group and individual presentations, research projects, work-based learning reports and other forms of continuous assessment including response papers, blogs, organised debates and seminars. Constructive feedback from your tutors is designed to help you identify your strengths as well as the areas that may need further attention, and is provided by email, in writing or verbally through seminars, tutorials and personal development planning sessions.
