Assessment

The International Business degree is made up of a total of 180 credits, distributed across a maximum of 11 taught modules plus a dissertation which make up the programme. The dissertation represents the largest single component, and is weighted at 33% of the total degree.

Assessment methods

The programme modules are assessed using various types of assessment, so that you can show your capacity to work in different ways – for example, both individually and as part of a team. Methods used include formal examinations, individual coursework essays and assignments, group-based reports and presentations and case study analysis. Many of the modules use more than one of these methods but most will include an element of formal examination. The University’s Student Learning Advisors can provide a range of useful study aid resources, providing guidance on topics such as exam technique and preparation, and other aspects of studying and learning more effectively.

For details of the assessment methods for individual modules, please see the module descriptions listed under programme content.
