Assessment for Year 1

Your core modules are assessed using a variety of methods, including an essay, a policy brief, and a dissertation. Further assessment methods will differ depending on the optional modules you choose.  Generally, you will have one assessment per module.

You’ll receive oral feedback on your arguments and ideas during seminars, which helps you develop skills in articulating an argument verbally.

You’ll also be encouraged to prepare essay plans/assignment outlines in advance of coursework deadlines, and to discuss these with the relevant lecturer online or in person (if social distancing rules allow) during their office hours or via email.

Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.
