    General assessment policy and procedures

    The course will be assessed through a mix of assignments, coursework or essays and end of semester written examinations. The weighting varies depending on the study unit but we believe that a mix of assignments, coursework and written examinations is the right combination, allowing students to demonstrate the effectiveness of learning outcomes. Assessment may not necessarily include written exams and instead the assessment may be based on coursework, as this is considered to be the most appropriate method of assessment for particular study units.
