The courses are modular which means you study a particular subject area as a module. Typically, a minimum of 20% of the module mark is based upon continuous assessment, with the remaining marks gained from an exam taken at the end of the module. A module normally counts for 10 or 20 credits, and each year you study the equivalent of 120 credits.
