International Student Entry Requirements
All HE courses are taught in English. You must be able to demonstrate a level of English equivalent to IELTS 6.0
Skype interviews may be possible – please contact HE Admissions to arrange.
You will complete and submit for assessment a set task at the end of each module. These tasks are fundamentally written tasks often in an essay form. The assessments are marked in accordance with the relevant university guidelines and regulations. You will find the relevant marking grids in your course handbook and your tutors will explain these grids to you at various times throughout the programme. The marking grids should serve you as a valuable resource and guide. Students’ final BA (Hons.) classification is calculated from the marks awarded for the three assignments at Level 6. To complete the BA students must successfully complete all the modules and assessments.
You will encounter a range of assessment methods which may include, but are not limited to: essays, practical reports, case studies, portfolios, oral presentations and independent study. You will be assessed against assessment criteria which will be made clear to you at the start of your module of study. The assessment across the programme aims to give you opportunities to demonstrate a variety of knowledge and understanding, skills and qualities expected of a graduate of this degree. The assessment for each module will normally be in one or two parts.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
