Teaching and learning
All of your modules are delivered by distance learning and we will provide you with excellent support from the same expert academics who deliver our on-campus courses.
Each module consists of specially prepared self-study materials, which are made available online through Blackboard, our virtual learning environment, and supplemented by our Library's book-loans-by-post service. You'll also have weekly online meetings and be allocated a personal tutor.
You'll be assessed through coursework exercises completed at the end of each semester and be given individual feedback via Blackboard and online meetings.
Academic support Our Student Learning Development Team provides help in the following areas:
- study and exam skills
- academic writing
- numerical data skills
- referencing sources
Our AccessAbility Centre offers support and practical help for students with dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties, including physical, mental health or mobility difficulties, deafness, or visual impairment.
You will be taught by an experienced teaching team whose expertise and knowledge are closely matched to the content of the modules on the course. PhD research students who have undertaken teacher training may also contribute to the teaching of seminars under the supervision of the module leader. Our teaching is informed by the research we do.
