Types of Coursework

Coursework (assessment) is a key part of your academic life. There are two functions to coursework: to help you learn through feedback (formative); to evaluate your progress within the module (summative).

Formative coursework marks do not contribute to your module and degree results; summative coursework marks contribute to your module and degree results.
