This module is entirely examined by continuous assessment. Over the year students hand in approximately 7-8 assignments, based on a mixture of individual and group work. Students must attend a minimum of 75% of classes and are expected to obtain a passing grade of 40% in the coursework. Failure to achieve this may result in students having to undertake additional project work satisfactorily over the summer in order to pass the year.
