Assessment for Year 1

We know that every student has different strengths, so we use a range of individual and group assessment methods – from essays to presentations and assessed discussions. We also use creative practice to assess some of our theoretical modules. All of these assessments help strengthen your critical thinking and give you skills that are attractive to future employers.

We also use formative assessments, which do not contribute to your overall mark, but do prepare you for the assessments that do. These offer an excellent opportunity to test the knowledge you learn through the modules and strengthen the chances of better marks at the end of them.

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.
