We don’t compromise on your student experience.
Lectures are usually delivered in person, on campus, and supported by seminars, group work and online activities to consolidate your learning.
Currently, all lectures are delivered online, usually live or occasionally pre-recorded, with supporting activities, such as Q&A sessions, and discussion boards, which are delivered through our online learning environment.
Seminars are smaller group sessions led by a member of staff which give you the opportunity to discuss topics covered in your lectures, in depth.
Currently, seminars are hosted online and, if possible, in a COVID-safe learning space on campus.
Students are offered extra support through Q&A sessions or discussion boards.
This could include working with other students to discuss a case, prepare and deliver a presentation, or to write a report.
Group work is important to consolidate and deepen your knowledge as well as develop important transferable skills.
