How you will learn

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

However, as a response to COVID-19 we are currently operating a 'blended model' of teaching and learning (except for distance-learning courses). This means a combination of face-to-face sessions on our campuses with online lectures. There is additional support for any students who are unable to attend campus because they are ill or shielding. We'll continue to offer blended learning to all our students, in line with government guidelines, for as long as we are advised to. If government or local authority rules require it, we may be limited to offering online-only learning but will return to blended learning as soon as we are safely able to do so.

You can find out more about how we are supporting our students.

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 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

Average intake per year is 20-30. Lecture sizes are normally 30-240, and seminars/tutorials are 15-30. This varies by module, if shared between degrees.

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.

Overall workload

Your overall workload consists of contact hours (lectures, seminars, etc), independent learning, assessments, and field trips. Each credit equates to around 10 hours of study. Contact hours may vary depending on your modules.

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.

  • Examinations
