*Formative assessments are subject to minor change
In order to qualify for the award of the MSc all students must submit all formative assessments and show satisfactory engagement with formative aspects of the course. During the first two terms there are several formative assessments designed to enable teaching staff and students to monitor progress. Students are provided with feedback on these assessments to help them improve their learning by identifying their strengths and weaknesses. Feedback will consist of in class sessions from module leads and teaching fellows, the return of annotated submissions and tutorial sessions in small tutor groups.
Students are provided with their marks for the Data Analysis and Report, the Global Health Extended Essay, the written examinations, and the dissertation.
The course is reviewed annually and is subject to minor changes in response to feedback and evaluation.
