How you’ll be assessed
A wide variety of assessment methods are employed to develop both academic and professional skills. The overall emphasis within the programme is on coursework assessment. There is a formal or 'summative' assessment at the end of each module. This will include essays, reports, presentations, computer-based projects, reflective and critical assignment, research activities and case studies. Examinations and Time-constrained assessments may be used to recognise end of module achievement, particularly where professional body accreditation is offered, and may involve unseen or open-book exercises.
Each year, there is a 40 credit Work-Based Learning project which supports you in the practical application of your studies in your workplace.
You will receive feedback on formal assessments undertaken by coursework. Feedback on examination performance is available upon request from the module leader. Feedback is intended to help you learn and you are encouraged to discuss it with your module tutor. We aim to provide you with feedback within 15 working days of hand-in.
