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.

Class sizes

Information coming soon.

Independent learning

At university, you must develop the ability to work more independently than you have done before. In the early stages of the degree, you will receive a higher level of support from module leaders and personal tutors.

Overall workload

Rather than being spread over a whole week, we try and condense our teaching into 2-3 days. This gives you time for other things.

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.

Feedback summary

Assessment feedback on the programme will be delivered through a range of mechanisms depending upon the assessment method. Assessment feedback will be given in a timely manner that adheres to Hadlow College's Assessment Policy, with a four week limit on assessment feedback being given to the students on formal summative assessment.

Dates and timetables

The academic year runs from September to June.

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