With research that has been judged to be ‘world-leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ and teaching which has been praised by the Quality Assurance Agency, we pride ourselves on our student-centred culture and strive to nurture the skills, knowledge and confidence of everyone in our community.

Assessment method

Assessments are varied to ensure you acquire a wide range of skills, particularly those required by future employers. You will learn to write essays, compile reports, critically analyse documents, give oral presentations and sit examinations.

Exams never count for more than 50% of the marks for any module, although the experience of doing exams is invaluable for entry into a wide variety of professions, including law, accountancy, the civil service and many financial and managerial careers.

We want you to develop an ability to work independently, so in Year 3, many modules are assessed entirely on the work you produce.
