Each week there are usually two hours of lectures for each course unit and a one hour workshop in alternate weeks, although this varies slightly. You are expected to double this in private study. Group work and group or individual presentations will form a regular part of your assignments.Coursework and assessment
Essays, multiple choice tests, project reports and presentations, in-class tests and weekly assignments constitute the coursework component of assessment, although the nature and proportion of coursework varies across course units. The remainder of assessment is by unseen examination. Depending on the degree course, in your final year you can choose to do a research-based dissertation or project. We aim to strike a balance between examinations and assessed coursework as well as providing opportunities for feedback on progress through non-assessed work.Course content for year 1

'I particularly enjoyed Operations Management as our lecturer does not teach from books but from his own experience, which makes the course very interactive and practical. It was structured around a group project which has given me a good example of teamwork to talk about in interviews, as we came up with our own business and faced challenges as a group.' - Daria Savilova from Russia, final year Management student
