How you will learn

Teaching

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

  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • 1-to-1 tutorials

Further details to be confirmed.

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. Contact hours may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

Class sizes vary by module. Lectures are normally attended by larger groups, and seminars/tutorials by smaller groups. This can vary more widely for modules that are shared between degrees. All students will have opportunities for 1-to-1 time with their tutors.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you are also expected to dedicate around 30 hours a week to self-study. This may involve further reading and research, preparing coursework and presentations, and preparing for tests and exams. Our facilities are designed to support you in these activities.

We encourage you to join societies and participate in sporting and other activities to engage in the wider life of the university community.

Overall workload

Your overall workload may consist of contact hours (lectures, seminars, etc.), independent learning, and assessments.

Each credit equates to around 10 hours of study. So, if you receive 50 contact hours for a 30-credit module, you will be expected to complete 250 hours of independent study to complete the module successfully. Contact hours may vary depending on your modules.

Assessment

On this course, students are assessed by:

  • Examinations
  • Coursework

Further details to be confirmed.

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

Feedback summary

We aim to provide feedback on assignments and to release examination results within 15 working days.
