Assessment Methods

Most subjects are examined through a combination of end-of-year examinations and coursework, but some are solely examined through coursework, for example, computing, design and projects. To transfer into a MEng programme you are required to maintain a standard equivalent to (at least) lower second-class Honours level throughout your studies.
