Can you tell me a bit about how your courses are run and how often examinations take place?
For all our courses, students normally study 8 modules per year as 4 modules per semester. The precise choice of modules is determined partly by the course and partly by students' own preferences. Most of our lower-level modules are assessed by a combination of 10% mid-term test and 90% written examination whereas most of our higher-level modules are assessed entirely by a written examination, with the main examinations held in May/June each year. The overall degree classification is based on all modules with a first : second : final year weighting of 1 : 3 : 6 for BSc degrees.
