Assessment

Student Essays

Assessment falls into two major categories.

a) Coursework
Students might, for example, research and write essays, give presentations in class, review books or respond to sources.

b) Examination
Often essays and source exercises.

This variety helps students to develop a variety of skills which will be of use in their future careers.

Students are required to pass all their first and second year modules. They must achieve a higher grade in subjects they wish to take in their final two years.

Degree Classification

Classification of the degree with which a student graduates (First, 2:1, 2:2 for example) is determined by performance in the final two ‘honours’ years of study. It is based on performance in all modules taken in the final two years of the degree and is judged on both course work and examination.
