Assessment Method The way in which students are assessed will vary according to the learning objectives of each module. Most modules are assessed through a combination of coursework, class tests and end of semester examinations. Some modules [e.g. final year Honours Project module] are assessed through project work, written assignments, presentations and interviews. Details of how each module is assessed are shown in the Student Handbook which is provided to all students during their first year induction.
Work Placement As part of our sandwich programme, students may elect to take a work-placement. An employability programme provides support on application and CV completion, interviews and what to expect on placement, while our dedicated Placement Officer provides both information on current placement opportunities, and ‘on placement’ support.
