Assessment

Assessment Methods

Our specialist teaching staff have hands-on experience of working in computing, and offer expert tuition in labs and classrooms. Assessment is through a mix of assignments, practical work, reports and presentations. There are no formal examinations, only coursework.

As part of the course, you will be required to undertake projects both in groups and individually using industry-standard software and access to specialist resources such as the Extended Reality, Cyber Security and Networking Labs.

A prominent feature of the course is the use of in-course assessment, where modules are assessed by the course teaching team as you complete them. The focus of the degree is the final year computing project, showcasing your high-level computer skills in a practical project of your choice. This course is typically delivered on-site two days a week across the academic year.
