HOW YOU WILL LEARN

Modules are typically assessed via one or more coursework assignments and/or one or more examinations. Some modules are only assessed via coursework, others are only assessed via examination, while others use a mix of both. Depending on the nature of a given coursework assignment, you may receive the assignment specification at the beginning of the module for hand-in at the end of the module. Alternatively, you may be given it later in the module to complete before a set deadline.
