Assessment will take the form of a group study of a current issue in China today that has global implications. A group presentation accounting for 30% of the total mark will be combined with a group report for 30%, in which each individual undertakes one key aspect of the study. Students will be required to contribute to a group blog throughout the course and will be asked to submit a single entry for assessment supported by a reflective assessment of the content and its impact.
