Assessment

How will I be taught and assessed?

The course is taught through a mixture of informal lectures and seminars at day-schools, practical sessions, field trips and discussion.

Students will learn how to present ideas both through speaking and writing and will also have access to online support through our virtual learning environment, which will accelerate learning and enhance students' experience of the course.

All students are expected to take an active part in the course and submit work showing evidence of learning. In particular, you will be expected in each term to:

  1. attend the day-schools and fieldtrips
  2. participate actively in class work
  3. undertake reading and assignments set by the tutors
  4. access resources and submit assignments (essays and document evaluations) through ICE Online, the Institute’s virtual learning environment.

It is essential that students have an email account and regular access to an internet-connected computer. The course is supported by a web-based Virtual Learning Environment and course communications will be sent via email. Students are expected to submit their assignments online and feedback on assignments is delivered online.

The computing facilities available at a public library or internet café may be sufficient and unlimited free computing and internet access will be available to students within the University Library throughout the course.

Students retain access to the learning resources on their course, and to the student common room, for two academic years after they have completed their course.

The course is taught and awarded at first-year undergraduate level (FHEQ 4) and offers 60 credits within the Higher Education Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS). This is equivalent to half of the first year of full-time undergraduate study.
