How you'll learn

We pride ourselves on giving students a fantastic experience and great support from day one. We're an inclusive university with a close-knit community of students and our teaching reflects that. Knowledge is developed through lectures, workshops and guided reading, seminars and knowledge-based activities with feedback, online discussions and activities. Thinking skills are developed through reflective activities and case studies with feedback online discussions and activities. Practical skills are developed through IT activities with feedback Bloomberg and Research skills-based activities with feedback. Skills for life and work (general skills) are developed through presentations, research and coursework.

    Guided independent study

    When not attending timetabled lectures or workshops, you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. This will typically involve skills development through online study, reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects and preparing coursework assignments and presentations. Your independent learning is supported by a range of excellent facilities including online resources, specialist facilities, such as game labs, the library, the full Microsoft Office software, including MS Teams, and Moodle: our Virtual Learning Environment.
