The College may undertake a video interview with the prospective student to better understand their English proficiency and, where appropriate, may also require a Medium of Instruction certificate from the student’s previous educational institution. The English language proficiency requirement may be waived if the student is a native speaker of English and they have completed their secondary education in a country where English is the official language or English was the language of instruction where they graduated.

Module Teaching & Assessment for all modules except Dissertation

The module will normally have the following assessment regime:

– Written examination: this will typically account for some 40% of the final grade and takes the form of a written examination under controlled conditions.

– Individual Essay(s): this will typically account for some 40% of the final grade and takes the form of a specialised essay. Students will be required to explore an emerging trend or topic within the theory and practice of the module discipline. This will require an extensive search of the relevant academic and practitioner-based literature and students will need to make reference to both academic and industrial/practitioner sources in their written work.

– Group work: this will typically account for some 20% of the final grade and takes the form of a report. A selection of the groups will be invited to present or pitch at the end of the module to a panel.

 

Module Teaching & Assessment for Dissertation

Each student will be allocated a supervisor who will help them with the development of their project proposal, oversee progress with the project, comment as appropriate on draft materials produced by the student and be available to assist the student with the project, as appropriate.

The dissertation/major project is assessed via the production of a dissertation of some 10,000 to 12,000 words in length.

Where necessary, a viva voce will be conducted in those instances where the provisional mark is considered to be a marginal pass.

To successfully complete the module an overall pass mark of 40% must be achieved.
