Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment.
The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. The taught element of the course includes 8 x core modules and 1 x elective modules to be chosen from an extensive list.
