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.

  • Academic writing (including how to reference)
  • Research skills
  • Critical thinking
  • Revision, assessment and exam skills (including time management)

about
Sophia Fedorowicz
Graduate, MSc Applied Research

My broad area of interest is mental health and I went into my Master’s from a psychology undergraduate course not really knowing where I would go with it - I just knew that I wanted to learn more.

In the past year I have undertaken two applied experience placements, written blogs, spoken to people from every area of mental health, from academics to practitioners in many different areas to people in the third sector supporting people with mental distress. I have presented at a conference and gone on a trip to York University to volunteer with the Cochrane Common Mental Disorders Group and written so many essays.

I have taken every opportunity to explore what kind of researcher I want to be, what my passion is and how I want to develop after the course.
