During your first year it is important that you have a smooth transition into University.Continuous assessment usually accounts for one quarter to one third of the mark for a given module, while the remainder is contributed by the end-of-year examination in the summer term.A subset of modules is assessed entirely through coursework, without an end-of-year examination.At the beginning of each module, you'll be given information on how and when you'll be assessed for that particular programme of study.You'll receive feedback on each assessment within three weeks, so that you can learn from and build on what you have done.Once you have a career in your sights, one-to-one support with CVs and job applications will help give you the edge.In addition, our employer-endorsed award-winning Personal Skills Award (PSA) recognises your extra-curricular activities, and provides an accredited employability programme designed to improve your career prospects.This will be made up of lectures, practical laboratory workshops and seminars.The proportion of time spent in each will vary depending on which year you are in and the optional modules you choose.Studying at degree-level is likely to be very different from your previous experience of learning and teaching.Each module is assessed independently, and all modules contain some components of continuous assessment, that is, assessment taking place during the teaching terms.
