Adapting our teaching
Here are some of the ways we have adapted our teaching and support without compromising on quality.
Lectures are usually delivered to your whole cohort 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 delivered online through our online learning environment.
Seminars are smaller group sessions led by a member of staff, giving you the opportunity to discuss topics covered in your lectures in depth.
Currently seminars are online and you can contribute to discussions through your computer audio or by using comment or chat functions.
This includes working with other students to discuss a case, prepare and deliver a presentation, or to write a report.
Group work is important to deepen your knowledge and develop important transferable skills. Currently, group work takes place online through platforms including Zoom breakout rooms and Blackboard Collaborate.
A welcoming environment

You’ll make friends through course and society activities, and get support in your studies from older students through our peer-assisted student support scheme.
