Teaching, Assessment and Feedback
Teaching methods are designed to provide an in-depth knowledge of the subject, as well as developing the analytical, presentation, teamwork and communication skills sought by employers.
Individual course modules may be taught using a variety of methods including lectures, small-group tutorials, face-to-face and web supported seminars and supervised computer laboratories which will provide you with practical and theoretical knowledge. Independent study is also actively encouraged and you will need to spend time working on your own - studying and researching in the library and carrying out practical work on projects. Assessment takes place throughout your period of study. The majority of modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and examination.
All students are assigned an academic adviser to oversee their progress and to guide them through their wide range of module choices.
