This section helps you understand more about how you'll learn based on standard delivery of teaching and learning on campus.

We are looking forward to welcoming students to our campuses for 2021/22. 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 2021/22 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.

Teaching

In a typical week learning takes place through a combination of:

  • Timetabled learning
  • Independent study

You can view more information about how each module is taught within our 'What you will study' section.

Seminars and workshops enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups. You will also be able to meet your personal tutor. Timetabled learning may fall between 9am and 9pm depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

The typical student intake per year averages 100-130. Lectures are normally attended by larger groups, and seminars/tutorials by smaller groups. This varies depending on level of study and where modules are shared between degrees (i.e. final-year options may experience smaller class sizes).

Part-time study

This course can be studied part-time in some circumstances, but students may still need to attend on several/most weekdays, as required by their timetable. Contact us for more details.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you'll need to dedicate self-study time (around 20-30 hours per week) to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams.

You can use Stockwell Street library and online resources to support further reading and research.

In addition, during the week you can also:

  • Attend additional support classes in some modules
  • Attend guest lectures from industry experts
  • Take part in employability and enterprise workshops
  • Join student societies.

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.

Each module you study towards this degree is worth 15 or 30 credits. These represent around 150 or 300 study hours respectively. If you receive 72 contact hours for a 30-credit module, you should expect to commit 228 hours to independent study to complete it successfully.

Assessment

**Students are assessed through a combination of assessment methods depending on the modules chosen.

You can view how each module is assessed within our 'What you will study' section.

Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
