Assessment methods

The majority of modules will be assessed on the basis of written coursework of 5,000-5,500 words. The 30-credit dissertation module will involve the submission of a dissertation of 10,000 words on a subject agreed with your supervisor/Programme Director. If you decide to offer the 60-credit dissertation instead, you are required to submit a dissertation of 20,000 words on a subject agreed with your supervisor/Programme Director. Most modules have a single summative assessment with 100% weighting but there are some where there is more than one assessment and the weighting for each will be 50%. You have the option of completing formative coursework in each module. The formative assessment will give you an opportunity to understand and appreciate the academic levels expected.
