Assessment method

Education 2030 - We want to ensure you have the best learning experience possible and a supportive and nurturing learning community. That’s why we’re introducing a new block model for delivering the majority of our courses, known as Education 2030. This means a more simplified timetable where you will study one subject at a time instead of several at once. You will have more time to engage with your learning and get to know the teaching team and course mates. You will receive faster feedback through more regular assessments and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life. Teaching and assessment - Teaching involves a mixture of large group sessions, tutorials, online resources and formative assessments. Students are given feedback throughout the course to develop and improve their technical knowledge, skills and understanding. Emphasis is placed on the application of technical understanding to case based and impact focused scenarios through the use of assessments. Teaching contact hours - This is a full-time course. The learning, teaching and assessment contact hours for all the 30 credit modules are as follows: Lecture: 20 hours Seminar: 40 hours Self-directed study: 200 hours Consolidation: 35 hours Assessment: 5 hours
