How will I be assessed?

Assessments will be formal and informal, designed to help students building on their successes and to meet requirements for entry into postgraduate study. Assessments in Architecture will be based on studio-tasks for a design and research portfolio and graphical and oral project presentations. Assessments of English language and communication skills will be based on written assignments, oral presentations, interviews, and written examinations.
