The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of ‘formative’ assignments.
Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade. Assessment methods include a range of coursework assessments such as essays, portfolios, blogs, presentations, reflective diaries and independent research studies and projects in year 1. There is an increased word count in year 2 and an increased expectation in relation to depth of analysis, assessments include: essays, case studies, reports, portfolios, blogs, presentations, reflective journals and independent research study projects.
You will receive feedback on assessments and undertaken by coursework. Feedback is intended to support learning and you are encouraged to discuss it with personal academic tutors and module tutors as appropriate.
We aim to provide you with feedback on formal course work assessments within 20 working days of hand-in.
