Assessment for Year 1

At the end of each year you will be assessed on the basis of coursework and, for some modules, project and examination results. The balance of assessment by coursework and exam depends on the modules you choose.

For each module you will have the chance to test your skills with one or two pieces of practice or ‘formative’ assignments. That assignment might be a coursework essay, project or an exam.

You will get feedback on your practice assignments from your tutors, helping you improve your work before your final ‘summative’ assessment. We encourage you to discuss your feedback with your teachers to help you put it into practice.

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.
