Teaching will include lectures and lab classes, small group tutorials, projects, seminars, workshops, field trips and innovative demonstrations.
State-of-the-art web-based materials, automated feedback and marking systems, on-line tests and electronic coursework submission all provide an excellent modern learning environment.
Assessment methods are varied and wide-ranging, including: annotated logs, blog posts, business plans, multiple-choice exercises, concept maps, essays, essay plans, field reports, lab reports, literature reviews, live performances, reflective journals, portfolios, presentations, role play and written exams and tests.
When not attending lectures, seminars or other timetabled sessions you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, undertaking research in the library, preparing coursework assignments and presentations. To help with your independent learning, you can access the Library and our social study spaces in halls of residence.
Your contact hours will depend on the option modules you select. You can see details of the contact hours on individual module pages.
