How will I be assessed?

The purpose of assessment is to provide opportunities for students to demonstrate the extent of their knowledge and skills at a given point. The outcomes are as important to the provider as they are to the student. To provide accurate, global readings therefore, the course takes an incremental and varied approach to the assessment of the course content, culminating in the dissertation. This is a substantial piece of original research on an aspect of Applied Linguistics TEFL, but whose precise focus is determined by each student, and according to their anticipated career plans. Here, the ability to plan, execute and evaluate independent research is assessed and represents the apex of a student's postgraduate studies.
