This module is assessed by Coursework and Examination. Coursework will be in the form of a written assignment of 2000 words to be submitted during term (70%) with the remaining 30% of the Coursework mark being allocated on the basis of your participation in class based discussions.
At the end of the module you will sit one final 135 minute exam during the University exam period.
