Modules and Assessment
Teaching and Learning Methods
Teaching and learning take the form of seminar and lecture sessions in small groups, with lots of individual learning and fieldwork. There is a blend of tutor-led, student-led and independent learning sessions. Our flexible approach means we are happy to adapt the curriculum delivery to accommodate different learning styles. During this top-up year, we will encourage you to become more independent in your learning, for example you will be expected to complete a dissertation project with minimal supervision by a named tutor. These independent skills could facilitate progression to Level 7 and beyond and contribute to Lifelong Learning.
