How you learn and are assessed
Acquisition of knowledge is facilitated and fostered through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, practicals, directed reading and student-centred learning. The majority of modules make use of online learning resources. Case studies are used to illustrate real world examples and to provide an opportunity for critical analysis and evaluation. Cognitive skills are consistently promoted and developed by means of lectures, tutorial directed reading, seminars and student-centred learning. Within practical exercises, students are expected to evaluate their own work to ensure that products not only work, but are also fit for purpose.
Assessments are designed to develop and assess the achievement of the level of performance expected at each level. Knowledge and understanding is assessed using projects, reports, portfolios and practical assessments.
Only approximately 20% of the programme is assessed by examination.
