Part-Year Module Handbook

The Part-Year Module Handbook contains the approved methods of examination and assessment for Student Mobility students who are on placement at the Warwick for part of the academic year only. If you are a full academic year Student you must follow standard methods of examination and assessment your base department will be able to assist with this.

  • The methods listed in the handbook have been formally approved by University Committee and must be selected in order to receive academic credit for your studies at Warwick.
  • You are not permitted to make informal arrangements with module tutors.
  • Failure to select an approved method of examination or assessment will result in a zero mark on the transcript provided at the end of your placement here at Warwick.
  • The most common examination or assessment method for part-year students not present during the Summer examinations period is ‘VA’ (visiting assessment).
  • If you will be present during the Summer Examinations period, please select the appropriate alternative method as selecting ‘VA’ will result in you not being allocated a seat in the examinations hall.
  • When you have identified the appropriate examination method from this Handbook, you will be required to register them on e-MR.
  • Full details about how to register your modules will be given at the Mandatory Study Abroad Welcome Meeting.
  • If you would like to take modules in the department of English & Comparative Literary Studies, please attach a short essay (250 words) detailing your previous experience of studying literature in English and why you wish to undertake English modules at Honours level. Please ensure that this essay focuses on what you have previously studied, rather than generalised statements about your enjoyment of literature.
