These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes.

In the event of a student failing the exam, a re-sit exam will be available in the Summer re-sit period. In the event of a student failing the Coursework element (Group Project) an individual case write up will be used as a summative assessment. The student will be provided with a case with 3 case questions to analyse 3 weeks in advance of the submission date, and a word limit of 1500 words.
There are two assessment components in this module:
A group report, 40% weighting, 2500 words, excluding references, figures, and tables. Group feedback will be available through formal written feedback within the standard Faculty timelines. General feedback on coursework performance will be available via SurreyLearn.
Examination, 60% weighting. Individual feedback will be available subject to arrangement with module convenor. General feedback on exam performance will be available via SurreyLearn.
For both items of assessment, a summary statement of generic feedback and group performance will be supplied to assist the student in reflecting on their own individual performance relative to that of peers.
Formative assessment and feedback
The coursework will be the principal means of providing formative feedback. Students will be given indications of achievement in relation to the assessment criteria published with the brief in week one. This will be supplemented by qualitative feedback.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The teaching and learning strategy is designed to develop an understanding of the nature and scope of International Marketing and also develop ability of critically and correctly making decisions in each step during the process of implementing International Marketing. The seminars will be based on International Marketing cases and so will give students practical understanding of actual issues. A two-hour lecture will take place every week and a one-hour seminar biweekly.
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.
