Assessment methods

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, usually a combination of exams and coursework.

We understand that each student performs differently depending on the way they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include:

•reports
•essays
•exams
•case studies
•summaries of e-discussions
•group and individual presentations
•poster presentations of research
•practical assessments, such as mock interviews
•records of learning

Many of our modules use formative assessment providing informal opportunities for feedback before the assessment is submitted.

Your tutors will aim to provide assessment feedback within 15 working days, and will happily discuss it with you one-to-one. This is particularly important as it gives you a chance to identify your strengths as well as the areas that may need further attention. We adopt the ethos that assessments are an essential part of your learning experience. You demonstrate your progress and development to yourself and us. We have tutors and sessions in place to offer additional support in key areas if this is required.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject is much more common at postgraduate level, and so be aware that many of the good jobs in HR and personnel management go to graduates with Masters or other postgraduate qualifications in this subject. Work experience for first degree graduates can help to get around the lack of postgraduate qualifications, but if you want to go into management you might find that Masters to be an advantage. Although human resource roles are much the most common outcome for graduates from these courses, they take those jobs in an impressive array of industries so there are plenty of options for the kind of employer you can work for. If you would like to know about graduate prospects for your chosen course more specifically, head to an open day to talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
