Assessment reflects management practice in the work environment and includes assignments, presentations, reflective portfolios and personal development plans, all related to management practice in real organisations. There are no formal examinations.
There will be two types of assessment, formative and summative. Summative assessments (which will contribute to the final degree) will include:

* assignments - individual and group, reports, essays, tests and presentations
* a portfolio including performative/patchwork text/artefacts and work-based/action
* learning tools
* group and individual presentations
* learning logbook.

The summative assessment for the compulsory modules will be adequately spaced out to allow you to plan your work. The aim is to maintain flexibility and to employ a wide range of methods.
Formative assessment will take place during the semester, but the requirements are more flexible and will be less time consuming.
Integration of learning across modules is achieved through integrative assessments such as portfolios. For those on the work-based and hybrid modes, the work-based learning methodologies/interventions will be drawn upon for completion of the assessment.
Teaching will include a wide range of approaches, including lecture, seminar, video and case studies.

Candidates will normally be expected to hold a first degree at a minimum of lower second-class honours. Holders of other awards, including those from non-UK universities will be considered on the equivalence of their qualifications. Those candidates for whom English is not a first language will be expected to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. Candidates who do not possess any of these entry criteria, but can demonstrate appropriate relevant experience in a post of management or professional responsibility may be admitted if, in the opinion of the admissions tutor, they are capable of profiting from and contributing to the course.
