Assessment Methods

Practical modules will be assessed both on practical output and on the individual's ability to reflect critically on their practice. Other modules are assessed by exam and assignment and frequently also offer the opportunity to submit practical work as an element of assessment. As you progress through the degree, much of your study will be done in small teaching groups with an emphasis on learning both group work skills and the ability to carry a piece of work through yourself from initial concept to completion.
