Types of assessment
Most assessments are either referred to as coursework or exams, however, the University permits a wide variety of assessment types, and the nature of your assessments will depend on the module you are studying.
Other types of assessment can include exhibitions, performances, in-class tests, field work and many others.
Details of all assessments should be made available at the start of teaching on each module that you are taking. This information should make it clear what type of assessment you will be required to take and, in the case of coursework, how it should be submitted. These details can be found in online sources or in module handbooks.
