Assessment method

Under the guidance of experienced and committed staff, your learning involves a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and guided reading. In lectures, specific information is delivered to larger groups while in the smaller seminar groups issues can be explored in more depth. Workshops are informal sessions in which you can extend your knowledge or seek further clarification of issues. Apart from scheduled teaching sessions, staff are readily available to provide further academic support and guidance. Some modules make use of a variety of guest speakers, such as academics and practitioners, to deliver lectures that enhance your learning experience and broaden your education.
