Each module is subject to assessment in accordance with the University Undergraduate Modular Scheme Assessment Policy:
There are a variety of different ways that you can be assessed, e.g. written assignments, presentations, tests, examinations, group and individual work.
You should read the assessment requirements in your module handbooks at an early stage and make a note of the submission dates in order to plan your time.
All assignments must be correctly referenced using the Harvard referencing system. A guide to referencing is available on the last page of this booklet.
Submission deadlines are clearly stated in the module handbook. Assignments which are submitted late but within 7 days of the submission deadline will be capped at 40%. Assignments submitted after 7 days will be treated as non submissions and given a mark of 0% (FO). Please note, there is no 7- day grace period for retake assessments.
Unless clearly stated in your module handbook, all written coursework must be submitted electronically through the appropriate module site in StudySpace. Assignments that are emailed to members of staff will not be
Assignment front sheets must be completed and submitted accordingly. For group work, if all members have contributed equally, there is no need to record contribution levels as this will be assumed. If, however, there has been an unequal distribution of work, the proportion of work completed by each group member should be recorded. Groups who have identified unequal contributions from group members will need to speak to the Module Leader prior to the submission of the work to discuss the work that each student contributed.
To pass a module you need to achieve at least 40% overall. Additionally, some financial modules may also require you to achieve a minimum mark/grade in each major category of assessment. You should always consult your Module Handbooks for module specific information.
You should make every effort to pass all modules on the first attempt. Any module that is retaken or repeated, without mitigating circumstances, will be capped at 40%. You should also consider how employers will view your application if you have had to be reassessed in any module.
