Learning and assessment
The programme’s assessment strategy has been designed to expose our students to various forms of assessment, in order to develop transferable skills and create a positive student experience. As such, individual essays and business reports, group presentations, oral exams, written exams and online discussion forums will assess students. We have embedded inclusivity and diversity into assessments throughout the programme, allowing students to select the focus of their assignment where appropriate.
The majority of assessments are based on individual contribution, but there is some assessed group work.

During the summer months of June, July and August you will study further modules and begin work on your dissertation. Between September and December you will complete your final modules and focus on your dissertation.
