The degree (depending on the stream selected) is offered by dissertation only or by coursework and dissertation.

A candidate registered for the degree by dissertation only will be eligible for the award of the degree upon the acceptance by the Senate of a dissertation on an approved topic embodying research and produced under the guidance of a supervisor appointed by the Senate and, if required by the examiners, upon successful completion of an oral examination.

Formative and summative assessment of coursework is undertaken using a variety of methods. In keeping with the principles of adult education, the courses aim to provide students with feedback about their personal development as learners and to convert all forms of assessment into learning opportunities. The integrated assessment is designed to collect evidence during the period of study and at its completion that the student has attained the course/exit level outcomes.
