You'll take two compulsory taught modules totalling 40 credits. All compulsory taught modules will take place in the Autumn and Spring terms. You may also select a further 20 credits from taught modules, with guidance from your Programme Director.
Assessments can include essays and other assignments, problem-solving exercises, presentations, class tests and, in some instances, written examinations. The assessments for the core modules are all coursework based.
The majority of the programme consists of a 120-credit in-depth research project, which commences in January and is conducted during the Spring and Summer terms and the summer vacation. This can be on a theme of your choosing, in accordance with the aims of the degree programme.
The research project is assessed by a literature review, a presentation, and by a written thesis in the form of a scientific paper.
