The Foundation Degree in Building Services Engineering is designed to conform to LJMU Modular Framework Regulations. The programme uses a wide range of assessment instruments (as listed above) and as such there is no one universal set of assessment criteria. At the start of each module the students will be provided with a module handbook which will clearly specify the assessment criteria for that module.
