The professional world our successful graduates are aiming to enter are seeking students that are able to conduct useful research, think critically about that research and apply to complex problems - this ,inter alia, necessitates effective use of modern ICT and the ability to utilise knowledge effectively. Particularly within this field graduates will be expected to show excellent quantitative skills. These students will be assumed to process effective two-way communication skills and be comfortable and effective in self-managed and team environments. The formative and summative assessments necessary to develop, hone and showcase these abilities are, of necessity many and varied and these programmes will expose the students to individual coursework, and presentations, group tasks, reflective logs, role-playing as well as traditional closed book examinations.
