Examinations – two hours, ten multiple choice questions and a choice of two from six long form questions.

Coursework – essay, project report or portfolio.

Oral presentation.

The range of assessment methods reflects the practical nature of the programme and aligns the assessment with the learning outcomes of the programme. A mock assessment is included.
