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 be assessed through a 15,000-word dissertation (worth 90% of the mark), and a presentation (worth 10% of the mark). 

Through formative (practice) 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 the 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 which takes 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 and review of modules. Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. 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. Availability of optional modules may be restricted owing to timetabling, lack of demand, or limited places. Where this is the case, you will be asked to make alternative module choices and you will be supported during this process.
