Assessment methods

Teaching on campus takes place on two full days in the week (usually Mondays and Wednesdays). All additional work, independent study, coursework etc. needs to be organised to fit your own circumstances. We understand that some students need to work but emphasise that this is a full-time course and so if working in the daytime you will need to work on your studies in the evenings. There is a range of assessment methods including essays, reports, reviews and presentations. There is only one exam which is in statistics.
