Your final year is the most intensive phase of study, meant to round out your preparation for future professional achievement.

The BSc (Hons) Business and Tourism Management degree provides an ideal setting for testing your knowledge and understanding through informal formative evaluations. Formative assessments will be conducted prior to the formal summative evaluation, which will decide your final grades.

Each module typically includes at least one formative evaluation, on which you will receive feedback from your course staff. Formative assessments are solely for developmental purposes and do not contribute toward your final module mark. They are intended to help you gain more understanding and confidence in module materials and approaches to formal evaluation. Students who do not participate in informal assessments frequently struggle with Foundation Year progression and subsequent academic levels.

The official summative assessment is normally administered near the end of each module. Written exams and various types of coursework, including as reports, portfolios, essays, and presentations, may be used to assess students. Summative assessment grades contribute to your overall module grade. Assessment techniques are examined on an annual basis and may be revised in cooperation with students, such as in response to student or External Examiner criticism. An External Examiner is an independent academic expert from another higher education provider to provide external assurance on your course’s academic standards.
