FORMAT AND ASSESSMENT
This Masters programme is assessed through a combination of assignments, written examinations, clinical case presentations and a dissertation. In the first two years, most modules are assessed by a combination of 60 per cent written examination and 40 per cent written assignments. For each module, you must complete a self-assessment exercise, a formative essay and a final summative essay, to be entered into the end of year written examinations. During the course, clinical work is also undertaken which is assessed by submission of clinical case presentations. In the final year, you will be allocated a supervisor and undertake a dissertation. If you fail an assessment element at the first sitting, you will be permitted one further attempt. Exams can be taken in London or, for overseas students, at centres in the student's country of residence. Overseas examinations incur an additional fee payable to the Examinations Office. Further details of overseas exam arrangements and applicable fees can be viewed at: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/about/structure/admin/acservices/examinations/students/sea/alternative
