How will I be assessed?

The assessment strategy is designed to allow you to demonstrate your knowledge and abilities through a range of different assessments.

You will undertake written assignments – essays and reports – as well as participating in group conferences, poster presentations, and presentations.

These presentations are designed to build your confidence and become accustomed to presenting yourself in a variety of settings. Being able to practice these skills in a supportive environment will develop this essential employability skill.

You will also have in-class tests and two examinations – one in the first year and one in the third year – to allow you to demonstrate and record your ability to work under pressure.

However, the weight of assessments are written assignments and these allow you to explore the subject in depth through detailed research and construct an argument based on the evidence you gain in preparing the assignment.
