Assessment for Year 1

We’ll use a wide range of methods to assess your learning – including project work, programming assignments, essays, written reports, oral presentations, laboratory exercises, and seminar presentations. Which one we choose will depend on the module content and learning objectives. You will also complete group-based coursework. 

Most modules are assessed through a mixture of coursework and exams (usually 40% examination and 60% coursework), while some are entirely assessed by coursework. In your final year, you’ll be assessed particularly on your understanding and how you integrate knowledge from different areas of the subject.

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.
