Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Lectures are the primary teaching medium, with private study adding value. This teaching method is an effective means of assisting students in the acquisition of a knowledge base that will facilitate understanding of a sizeable and detailed body of materials (IKO1-IKO3).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination allows students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and the possession of subject-specific insights. This medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of inter-related topics within the syllabus.
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
