Teaching and assessment

Teaching

We know that everyone learns differently. So not only do we use traditional ways of teaching like lectures, we also use problem-based learning to help you apply your skills.

For this course, you'll:   

  • Work with others on group work   
  • Delve deeper into subject areas in workshops  
  • Be expected to study independently    

Our teaching is supported through our Virtual Learning Environment called Blackboard. This means you can access a range of materials to support your lectures wherever you are.   

We’ll also assign you a supervisor to support you throughout your research project.

Assessment

There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative).   

Practice assessments do not count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding – and learn how to improve for the real thing.   

You’ll have formal assessments at the end of each module. These could include essays, exams, or portfolios.
