In a small number of optional Spring modules in your first and second year, assessment will involve an exam 

In the final year, most modules are assessed by a larger piece of your own work or a number of more in-depth essays. 

Your final degree result is based on the marks for all your modules in the last two years, weighted 40:60 so that more importance is attached to the fully mature work of your third year.

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.

Students will take 120 credits, all or most of which will be from Option Range A (minimum 80 credits, maximum 120 credits). Any remaining credits will be taken from Option Range B. Students are permitted to take 20 or 40 credits from Options Range B (subject to satisfactory progress) to continue with their chosen subsidiary route. Students must ensure they take an even balance of credits in each semester.
