Assessment methods

This Master's degree uses a combination of teaching, learning and assessment methods. It is based upon an independent, though supervised, research project undertaken by the student combined with structured learning through lectures, seminars and site visits. While a combination of traditional and innovative assessment forms is used, written assignments remain as the core format of assessments. Blogs, audio-visual presentations and site-specific tasks, however, also occupy a significant part of the assessment process.
