Assessment method

All assessment is done by coursework.

We acknowledge that all students perform differently depending on the way they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. However, there are no exams on this course; all assessment is through coursework. This may include:

•essays
•a dissertation
•literature reviews
•reflective portfolios
•individual and group presentations
•live projects (e.g. curating an exhibition, teaching within schools)
•reports on field studies or placements

Constructive feedback is crucial in helping you to identify your strengths and areas where you may need to put in more work. For this reason, we offer written and oral feedback immediately after each completed assignment as well as mid-way through, and at the end of, each semester. However, you will be encouraged to discuss your work informally with your tutors on an ongoing basis. As your tutors know you well you can be confident that their advice is based on deep knowledge of your work and your potential.
