Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The use of lectures as the principal teaching method is justified by the need to assist students in the acquisition of a knowledge base that will facilitate understanding of a sizeable detailed body of materials (IKO1-5)
Tutorials provide a forum in which students are given the opportunity to develop subject-specific skills, negotiate their problems with tutors and their peers in a less formal approach. (ISO1-5)
Practical laboratory work will be conducted and assessed within final summative assessment. The experimental experience is a key aspect of the course. It develops practical skills, demonstrates the relevance of the lecture material and provides practice in computer-based analysis and performance calculations.
The independent study time is essential for students to work through the lecture material, coursework, tutorial and past examination questions repeatedly, in their own time and at their own pace, until they thoroughly understand the material. Through this work students will obtain an in-depth comprehension rather than simply memorising how to solve a particular problem; will nurture their skills in analysis and will develop a mature approach to time allocation and personal discipline.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination affords students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and possession of subject specific and key skills. The medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of topics within a syllabus.
The unseen exam also affords students an opportunity to demonstrate numeracy and literacy and associated cognitive skills. The practical experiment assesses their ability to perform a piece of work, including experimental measurements, calculations, interpretation and presentation, without a tight time limit. The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
Semester 1 Study Abroad students would be required to sit an alternative examination in the December examination period.
