We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.
For every 15 credit module, we will provide 15-20 hours of lectures and seminars, and we will expect you to undertake 130-135 hours of independent study. A typical 30 credit module will involve 20-30 hours of lectures/seminars plus 270 hours of self-guided or group-based learning/project work. For your dissertation, we will provide 5 hours of discussion time with your supervisor, and we will expect you to undertake 595 hours of independent study and project work. Students should note that the self-study aspect of every module is extremely important: the readings given to students are a compulsory and key component of the learning experience
