Assessment

Student following this course will have a minimum of twelve hours’ lectures and tutorials a week. Each year consists of two semesters of 12 teaching weeks each followed by a period for revision and assessment.


The core lectures and tutorials are carefully timetabled to take place on two or three days of the week. Our partner believes this offers the students more chance to find meaningful, better-paid part-time work. Students at many universities have their lectures spread over the whole of the week, which gives them less time to build work experience. A bonus is that our partner will help students on this programme to find appropriate part-time work from the start of the course.


The learning experience will be further enhanced by skills sessions, tutor surgeries and guest lectures which are organised throughout the year.


Students are assessed predominantly through a mix of examination and coursework.
