Learning and Teaching Approach This programme is delivered with a variety of learning and teaching approaches, utilising excellent onsite resources and extensive industry links for applied aspects. For all modules, there are theory lectures delivered, aimed to deliver the core content and provide the underpinning knowledge. Lectures are used to convey the basic concepts, and facilitate further expansion of such concepts by the students, through independent study. To complement the theory lectures, students have group seminars that are used to reinforce those concepts delivered theoretically. The teaching methods focus on facilitating a student-centred approach to enhance the independent learning that takes place outside of the classroom. Students can expect:
  • Experienced, supportive and motivated staff with both academic and industrial experience.
  • Access to an Online Virtual Learning Environment called iLearn, which is used to enhance and facilitate teaching and independent learning on all programmes.
  • Guest lectures, demonstrations from a range of visiting speakers and offsite trips.
Contact Time Contact time includes approximately 13 hours a week to include lectures, seminars, practicals and tutorials. Students are also expected to carry out a significant amount of independent study in addition to contact time (approximately 25-30 hours a week). Independent study includes reading around the subject, preparing for tutorials and seminars, preparing for, and completing, module assessments and revision for examinations; forming an essential part of a student’s learning journey. What else can I expect?
  • Additional facilities include Science Centre, IT suites, dedicated University Centre, study spaces and social areas, and modern Learning Resources Centre.
  • Online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) used to enhance and facilitate teaching and independent learning on all programmes.
