Grading & Study Time

In line with the philosophy underpinning the degree, there is a strong emphasis on learning and teaching methods in the assessment of modules. While good quality of personal performance is encouraged, it is not a focus of assessment in the practical based modules. Rather, issues of inclusion, entitlement and differentiation are embedded in many of the assessments, and students are required to plan and evaluate their own and other students’ teaching. Students learn how to present a balanced evidenced argument through their formal written work, as well as via individual and group presentations. Within the final year students will design and conduct their own research project or critical portfolio in a specialist area of their choice. Specific types of assessments include; essays, laboratory reports, presentations (group and individual), practical tasks, examinations (seen and unseen papers).
