How you will learn

Teaching

You are taught through a combination of interactive lectures, discussions, and tutorials, with the use of appropriate and relevant case-studies. Our taught modules are research-engaged and most have a practical component that relates to the theory you cover in the classroom.

Individual research projects help you learn to adapt and apply specific methodologies to unfamiliar problems.

Class sizes

For specialist modules, our classes are usually limited to 20 students in lab sessions and 40 in lectures. This helps to create familiarity between students and staff and ensure a great learning experience. The modules that run across several courses can have larger classes sizes, which are typically broken down into smaller groups.

Independent learning

Our courses are designed to give you the space for exploratory and independent study. You'll work towards individual and group assignments and undertake the preparation/follow-up work associated with lectures, seminars, integrative assignments and laboratory classes.

We encourage students to take advantage of a range of related extra-curricular opportunities available within the university and elsewhere.

Overall workload

If you are studying full-time, you should expect the workload to be similar to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of courses you are studying.

Assessment

Students will be assessed through a variety of methods, such as:

  • Classroom presentations, discussions and case-studies
  • Critical reviews, looking at new areas of research
  • Examinations.

Feedback summary

University policy is to give feedback on assignments within 15 working days of the coursework submission date. 

Examination results will be available within 28 days.

Dates and timetables

Each academic year runs from September to June. You can begin the course in September or January.

Full teaching timetables are not usually available until term has started. For any queries, please call 020 8331 9000.

Fees and funding

Your time at university should be enjoyable, rewarding, and free of unnecessary stress. Planning your finances before you come to university can help to reduce financial concerns. We can offer advice on living costs and budgeting, as well as on awards, allowances and loans.
