You attend a combination of lectures and practical sessions for each module. Lectures concentrate on teaching the principles while practical sessions allow you to put these principles into practice in purpose-built labs. Throughout your practical sessions you receive feedback on your work and progress. You often work on a piece of work for several weeks building a deeper understanding of the subject as you work. The feedback you receive will help you to get the most out of your learning. In your final year you also undertake a personal project which integrates much of the work you have studied in previous years.
A variety of assessment methods are used. Your assessments are designed to build on the work you undertake in class and your learning continues through the assessment period.
