Module Overview

Failure to submit or present at Viva Voce, Industry Day and site visits, as described above, will invoke the deadline penalty resulting in a 10% reduction per day in the overall mark awarded for each 24 hour period after the deadline, up to and including the third day after submission (30%). The mark recorded for assessed work submitted after the next 24 hour period (72 hours) or not submitted at all, will be zero. Any failure to submit due to extenuating circumstances must be sent to the Module Coordinator and the FEPS UG Student Support Office before the submission deadline.

Methods of Teaching / Learning

Workplace-based learning, involving day to day practical work and one or more work programmes for which student has a greater degree of personal responsibility.


Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
