Assessment and Grading Procedures
Compulsory modules are assessed by means of an assignment and examination which are weighted 40 / 60 in favour of the exam. The 2,500 word assignment is required part way through the semester. Examinations are 3 hours in length and can be sat locally at one of our overseas centers; alternatively if you want to participate and benefit from an intensive one-day revision session, your examination will be held in Bangor the following day.
Elective modules are wholly assessed by means of a 5,000 word mini research project which are submitted on the final day of the semester. Each elective module studied combines to form the research element of the programme.
