Assessment method

The course utilises a wide range of teaching and learning methods that will enable you to be actively engaged throughout the course. Teaching and learning will focus on developing academic skills and utilising research informed teaching strategies. Teaching and learning methods are carefully crafted to suit the content and the learning outcomes of the module - typically using lectures in the early parts of modules to ensure that you have the key knowledge relating to the module. Through a variety of group- and individual-based seminars and practical laboratory sessions, you are then given the opportunity to develop more individual interests to develop personal and key skills. A range of assessment methods will be used to enable you to demonstrate the acquisition of your knowledge and skills. These include (but are not limited to): practical competency, written coursework, oral presentations, in-class tests, MCQs, examinations, laboratory reports and poster presentations. The assessment regime for each module has been designed to provide formative opportunities that allow you to practise and to receive 'feed forward' appraisals of your performance in preparation for the summative assessment.
