How you will learn

Covid safe teaching and learning

We are looking forward to welcoming students to our campuses for 2022/23. In line with government guidance, we are committed to delivering as much of our teaching, learning and student activity as possible on campus for the 2022/23 academic year. Depending on the national situation, and government advice, the situation may change but we are confident we are ready to manage any changes quickly and safely. Find out more about how we are keeping our campuses safe.

Teaching

Some lectures are delivered online, which allows you to study flexibly and arrange your studies around your other commitments. It also requires a lot of discipline and you will need to dedicate enough time for self-study.

You learn online using a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This allows you to access electronic study resources and forums to discuss course material and work collaboratively with others. You also have access to online resources via our library.

Class sizes

Information coming soon.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you will need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams. Our library and online resources will support your further reading and research. You can also join a range of student societies.

Overall workload

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.

Assessment

On this course, students are assessed via a range of employment-related activities. These may include academic posters, oral presentations, reports, work based projects, small scale research, essay and exams. Some modules may also include 'practice' assessments, which help you to make continual improvement.

Feedback summary
