University of Leicester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
For further details, see the full programme summary on our website.
Teaching includes lectures and lab classes together with tutorials and small group student support hours. Lectures include innovative software demonstrations and videos as well as more traditional slide presentations alongside worked examples. State-of-the-art web-based materials, automated feedback and marking systems, on-line tests and electronic coursework submission all provide an excellent modern learning environment. Apart from project work, which is assessed by coursework only, most modules are assessed partly by coursework and partly by exam. You will be assigned your own personal tutor who can provide advice about not just academic matters but also welfare concerns and careers development. You can see your personal tutor at any time by appointment or during office hours.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
