Various Assessment Strategies (ASC, ASW, AS1 to AS5) are used throughout the modules in
the programme. For example, AS4 is predominately applied in this programme and consists
of Formative Assessments (FA1 and FA2), also known as assignments or tests, which count
forty percent (40%) - twenty percent (20%) each - towards the overall mark. Summative
Assessments in the form of a final exam or capstone project (SA1), count fifty percent (50%),
and a research or reflective essay (SA2) count ten percent (10%) towards the overall mark.
No supplementary assessment is provided for FA1 or FA2. A maximum of one (1) additional
supplementary assessment opportunity is provided for SA1 and SA2 respectively, which will
be charged for. Please consult the Fact Sheet and Student Rulebook for additional, detailed
programme information.
