Most, if not all of the courses you register for will be assessed. Assessment can be either coursework/in course assessment, exam or both. The coursework you will have to do will be dependant on the courses you are taking. Information about coursework should be available in your course handbook (if applicable), or by contacting the relevant Course Co-ordinator.

Here you will find information on assessment including results, resit exams, the University's marking scheme (the Common Grading Scale), how to report medical or extenuating circumstances and special provision.

Research students are assessed by the submission of a thesis which is examined by two examiners (one external and one internal examiner, or two external examiners) and an oral examination (viva).
