Additional information

Teaching and Assessment Teaching Our approach We pursue excellence in both teaching and research. Our aim is to produce degree programmes which combine innovative and grounded teaching methods with leading-edge research, and which recognise the value of practical work experience in the learning process. We take great pride in both the quality of teaching and the extensive pastoral care of our students. Staff expertise All members of the academic staff are actively engaged in research and many have international reputations in their field. Their innovative findings feed into your courses to ensure that teaching is up-to-date. How will I be taught? The course is taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars, tutorials and small group projects. Lectures – Most modules involve one or two hours of lectures a week. These provide a broad overview of key concepts and ideas relating to your course and provide you with a framework from which to carry out more in-depth study. Seminars – These relatively small groups are used to discuss the content of lectures as well as issues arising from the modules. Seminars are often student-led. You can use seminars to clarify your own ideas in an atmosphere of discussion and debate. Laboratory/research work – All students take part in practical modules. Video production modules are taught throughout the programme. In addition, you will study social research methods, which include observation, interviewing, questionnaire design and more specific research techniques. One-to-one – You will get one-to-one supervision on your final year dissertation and at all levels you will have a tutor who is available to discuss academic (and personal) issues. If you go on work placement, you will also be allocated a tutor who will monitor your progress and provide further support if you need it. Lecturers are usually available to answer particular queries outside of scheduled hours – either in one-to-one tutorials or by email. Assessment
