Assessment Method There are several methods of assessment, although the most common are the coursework essay (of varying lengths, depending on year) and the examination (two hours long in years one and two, three hours in the final year). Most modules combine these two; some also include an element of assessed seminar participation. You will need to pass all modules in order to progress - the pass mark is 40% - and your degree mark will be calculated through averaging all of your final year marks.
Work Placement Work placement / study abroad
There is a flexible placement element in the first year of your degree, encouraging you to develop your skills as a writer in the context of a relevant workplace. Opportunities for study abroad, usually during the second year of your degree, are also available: ISEP (International Student Exchange Programme) offers links with over 140 American Universities; Erasmus+ focuses on European destinations.
