How you are assessed
Unseen written examinations are the main form of assessment, particularly at undergraduate level.
Some courses may also include coursework, online activities (or 'e-tivities'), and a dissertation or project report.
Where you are assessed
You don't have to come to London to sit your exams! You can sit exams at over 600 approved centres around the world (including local Ministries of Education or the British Council).
These centres are separate from local teaching institutions, and charge a fee for hosting the exam.
When you are assessed
Examinations are held throughout the year, depending on your course. Your programme regulations will tell you when your exams will take place.
Examination entry opening dates are listed on our website.
Individual feedback on unseen written examinations is not provided. However, you will have access to examiners' commentaries, which provide detailed feedback for the cohort and may include sample answers from past papers.
Other feedback, for example on coursework submissions, varies from programme to programme.
