You will also be responsible for and examined in all material delivered at lectures and tutorials and any additional required reading.
Written exams will take place before Christmas and in May. Not all modules will have formal examinations. Many modules use other types of assessment.
Assessment methods are linked to the learning outcomes of each module. The assessments are used to gauge your knowledge, understanding, analytical and critical thinking, problem-solving, presentation and communication skills.
As individual modules have unique features, a diverse range of formative and summative assessment methods are used.
Summative assessment is generally, but not exclusively, in the form of end of semester examinations. This is normally a three-hour exam for subjects valued at 10 credits, and a one and a half hour exam for subjects valued at 5 credits. In some cases a module may be examined by continuous assessment.
Other methods include in-class tests, individual and team projects, essays, and presentations.
