How you will learn

Covid safe teaching and learning

We are looking forward to welcoming students to our campuses for 2021/22 and we are committed to delivering as much of our teaching, learning and student activity as possible face-to-face and on campus for the 2021/22 academic year. Please note that UK Coronavirus policy continues to adapt to ongoing changes. Our plans may need to change and we may need to move activity online at short notice in response to any changes in Government guidance and Covid safety requirements.

Teaching

In a typical week, learning takes place through a combination of lectures and seminars. You'll be able to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller group sessions. Contact hours may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

The typical student intake per year is up to 220-230. Lectures are normally attended by 120-320, and seminars/tutorials by 15-30, based on the 2018 intake. This varies by module, particularly if they are shared between degrees.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you'll need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams. Our Stockwell Street library and online resources will support your further reading and research.

You can also join a range of student societies, including the Economics and Business Society.

Your overall workload consists of contact hours (lectures, seminars, etc), independent learning, and assessments. For full-time students, the workload should be roughly equivalent to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of modules you are studying.
