Teaching and learning
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, classes and computer practicals. You will be supported throughout your studies by staff who are also available for private supervision. Each week on average you will receive six to eight hours of lectures and four hours of seminars.
Your course modules will generally be assessed by a combination of exams and coursework projects. Some modules are assessed by demonstrated skills in computing or by seminar presentation where this is appropriate.
Your dissertation, which should be no longer than 5,000 words, will give you experience of a typical task that you may have to undertake in a graduate role. It will demonstrate a great deal of independent research along with analysis, critical thinking and the application of techniques.
I really enjoyed the variety of modules taught on my course and the statistical software packages – they complemented the theoretical learning and gave a practical perspective.
