Assessment reflects management practice in the work environment and includes assignments, presentations, reflective portfolios and Personal Development Plans (PDP), all related to management practice in real organisations. There are no formal examinations.
There will be two types of assessment, formative and summative. Summative assessment (which will contribute to the final degree) will include:
The aim is to maintain flexibility and to employ a wide range of methods.
The summative assessment for the compulsory modules will be adequately spaced out to allow students to plan their work.
Formative assessment will take place during the semester, but the requirements are more flexible and will be less time consuming.
Integration of learning across modules is achieved through integrative assessments such as portfolios.
For those on the work-based and hybrid modes, the work-based learning methodologies/interventions will be drawn upon for completion of the assessment.
Teaching will include a wide range of approaches, including lecture, seminar, video and case studies.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.

Although our roots stretch back to the mid-19th century, we’re far more concerned with what we can do today to help our distance learning students build a more prosperous future. Since our first bricks and mortar institution opened its doors 156 years ago, we’ve witnessed lots of changes, although our commitment to advancing the knowledge and education of students has never wavered.
