Please be aware that the submission of a formative essay in a content module constitutes one of the Department's monitoring points for your attendance. See here for details.
PLEASE NOTE: these are formative essay titles. You will receive feedback on your essay but the mark will not be counted toward your end-of-year assessment or degree classification. It is very important to note that you may not submit an essay on one of these titles for the summative end-of-year assessment. If you do so, you risk attracting a penalty of 10 marks.
