University of Wolverhampton



The University of Wolverhampton has a long history of providing students with the opportunities presented by a first class education.


As a major player in the UK higher education sector, the UoW continue to excel in the areas that have contributed to their excellent reputation: award-winning teaching, state-of-the-art facilities, international partnerships, strong business links and innovative research.


Today's modern University can be traced back to Wolverhampton’s Mechanics’ Institute and College of Art in the mid-1800s. These institutions, together with teacher training and health colleges that were later incorporated, developed their rich heritage and tradition of academic excellence in vocational higher education.


The UoW continue to be guided by it’s coat of arms’ motto ‘Innovation and Opportunity’ by widening participation in education and offering an outstanding portfolio of courses that challenge students to realise their potential. The quality of its teaching and learning was praised recently when the University received a commendation, the highest possible accolade, following the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) 2015 review.
 
University’s contributions to knowledge transfer, economic development, wealth creation and social justice position it as an active, pioneering institution on a local, national and global scale.

Assessment/ Academic Standards and Quality



Most modules on your course will be assessed by a portfolio containing samples of work that demonstrate what you have accomplished. This is a good way to assess learning and development that is illustrated by multiple examples of work, opportunities for self-assessment and reflection chartering over a period of time. Tasks set relate to outcomes being assessed thus documenting evidence of development towards mastering the identified outcomes and skills. Portfolios enhance the assessment process by demonstrating a range of skills and understanding of the subject area by a student. Some portfolios are sometimes called Learning Journals.

 

A portfolio consists of a set of items that provide evidence of your learning accomplishments and are accompanied by with a short written reflection.  Your portfolios, especially your reflection statements may be useful to demonstrate to potential employers, what you have gained from your course and the things that you are capable of producing. The exact contents of each portfolio will differ between modules. For example, practical modules may include a product that you have developed such as a piece of software, a CAD model or a physical prototype. Other more theoretical modules may contain results from test or examinations. The only common element between all portfolios is the written reflection.

 

Portfolios may consist of both formative and summative work. Formative assessments provide feedback and are not used in the grading process. Their purpose is to provide both tutors and students with a gauge of progress. All modules on your course will contain some formative assessments. Summative assessments are used in the grading process.
