Causes of Human Disease: Final Assessment Course


You have completed the first five courses of the University of Leeds Causes of Human Disease program and we would like to offer you a place on this final assessment course.

The final assessment course enables you to revise, practise and test the knowledge and skills you have gained in the Causes of Human Disease program. You will register as a student at the University of Leeds for the duration of the course. This will give you access to:

* the University of Leeds student portal
* e-resources in the University library and on the University website.

You will not receive a student card and you will not be able to access any of the University of Leeds campus-based services.

Completing and passing the final assessment course will enable you to earn 10 credits from the University of Leeds. See the FutureLearn FAQs on credit for more information.


About the assessment course

The final assessment course is three weeks long with an additional two weeks to submit your final assignments. It will require approximately 30 hours of study.

The assessment course will introduce you to academic skills for studying at university. These include referencing, searching for books and journal articles, and academic writing skills. During the course you also have the opportunity to complete two practice assignments.

For the final assessment, you will write an essay (1,200 words in English) and submit a reflective log (300 words in English). You will only pass the course and earn 10 credits from the University of Leeds when you have passed the two written assessments with a mark of 40% or over.
