Assessment for Year 1

Assessment 

We’ll assess your knowledge, skills and understanding through 100% coursework – with no exams. 

You’ll hand in both formative and summative assessments, which will provide you with extensive feedback to help you identify areas of strength and areas for improvement. 

At the end of each semester, you will be assessed on the basis of coursework and, for some modules, group/individual projects and presentations. For each module you will have the chance to test your skills with at least one practice or ‘formative’ assignments. Your final semester will be assessed by a dissertation.  

Feedback 

You will get feedback on your practice assignments from your teachers. The purpose of the feedback is to help you improve your work before your final formal or ‘summative’ assignment and we encourage you to discuss your feedback with your teachers. 

Module organisers will consider the relevant Senate Scales and adapt the feedback sheet to their particular assessment, which will be shared with you at the time that the coursework is set. The NBS feedback sheet has a ‘feed forward’ section which will enable you to receive individualised feedback on your summative coursework assessment. In the feed forward section, markers will attempt to give you concrete actions. The feedback will be provided to you within 20 working days. 

The dissertation adviser will provide you personalised feedback and feed forward in semester 2 and 3 for preparing your dissertation. There will be a series of meetings which will enable you to discuss and clarify feedback and action plans, and enable your adviser to evaluate the results and provide further suggestions.

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.
