If the module does not have an exam (coursework only), you are expected to submit all the same assessments as a regular student,
following the same deadlines.
If the module has an end of year exam, please speak to the Study Abroad Coordinator to discuss an appropriate assessment.
Languages and other modules with an end of term test require that assessments be arranged before the end of Term 1
If you decide at a later date to change your assessment (e.g. one essay instead of two), please contact the Study Abroad Coordinator.
If your lecturer would prefer a different method of assessment (e.g. reaction papers or journals), please ask them to speak to the Study
Abroad Coordinator before signing the form.
Unless the Study Abroad Office receives written confirmation from your home institution, all registered modules will appear on
your transcript regardless of the mark.
