Assessment

Assessment Methods

Providing students with an exceptional teaching, learning and assessment experience is at the heart of the programme and underpins all learning outcomes within our modules.

Teaching and learning may take a variety of forms from lectures, lab based work, workshops, tutorials or practical environments. Lectures allow main theories to be studied, whilst workshops and practical environments allow for the contextual application of these theories. Tutorials and one-to-ones provide students with the opportunity to access regular academic/personal support from the programme leader, ensuring the health and wellbeing of all our students is facilitated throughout the duration of their programme.

Should students require additional learning support, this can be facilitated and supported through the UCS learning support team, allowing appropriate learning strategies to be implemented and academic support arrangements to be made.

Students are expected to engage with independent learning through our Virtual Learning Environment, which provides additional support and information on their academic programme and personal development.

Ensuring students develop the skills required within industry, assessments on the programme adopt many forms, encouraging a diverse and contemporary approach.

These assessment methods include traditional essays, a dissertation, laboratory reports, presentations, screencasts, podcasts and practical deliveries.
