The Subject Specific and Skills Learning outcomes can be met through the Liberal Arts core modules and the major and topic modules, regardless of the optionality. The forms of assessment for Liberal Arts will differ across modules and will depend on which modules are selected by the student, but typically include a coursework essay. In the Liberal Arts core modules, we typically focus on alternative forms of assessments, including reflective logs, podcasts, portfolios and group work/presentations.
There will be a range of unassessed formative exercises, allowing students to make progress with the LOs and skills outside an assessment context. Opportunities for explicit discussion and support will be made available by module leaders in office hours and in routine meetings with academic personal tutors.
