Assessment Guidance

During 2021-22 a review of UCSD assessment process was undertaken to ensure that our assessment processes were informed by student feedback and followed the best practice within our sector. 

The new assessment policy is principles-based and can be viewed on the Academic Regulations, Procedures and Policies page.

To help you understand what the assessment policy and guidelines mean to you we have populated an assessment brief with information and guidance.
