Assessment for Year 1

Assessment

Each module has its own assessment structure to ensure that you meet the module learning outcomes. These include essays, presentations, reports and exams.

Most modules (including all compulsory modules) are assessed by coursework only, rather than exams, but it depends on your choice of optional module. For the dissertation module, you’ll mainly be assessed through a 15,000-word dissertation.

Through formative assessments in each area, we’ll help you develop your skills and abilities before completing the ‘summative’ assessment that counts towards your degree grade.

Feedback

You’ll discuss your feedback on your formative assessment with your tutors to help you improve your work before you submit your summative assessment.

For both formative and summative coursework assessments we always aim to give you feedback within 10 working days of hand-in (except for the dissertation where we take longer).

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. Students may select between 60 and 80 compulsory credits to make a total of 120 compulsory credits over the 2 year period. If you have not taken the compulsory Research Skills module in Year One then this must be taken in Year Two.
