Assessment for Year 1

We’ll use a wide range of methods to assess your learning – including programming assignments, technical reports, class tests, problem sheets, laboratory reports, presentations and demonstrations. It depends on the module content and learning objectives to decide which ones are used. Most modules are assessed through a mixture of coursework and exams, while some are entirely assessed by coursework only. In your dissertation module, you will be assessed particularly through a demonstration/presentation and the dissertation on your understanding, how you integrate knowledge from different areas of the subject and apply them into your project work.

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.

This is the second year of your taught Masters programme. But students may start their dissertation in their first year if they wish and are approved by the Course Director.
