CeNTAur: Classics Non-Traditional Assessment

Modules developed by individual members of staff assess websites, teaching plans, performance plans and storyboards. This is in addition to the traditional assessment activities of essays, exams, and presentations.

Our pioneering Independent Second Year Project (ISYP) module fosters independent learning skills by increasing the amount of control you have over the format of your work.
