      Teaching and learning
      We use a mixture of teaching styles - lectures, tutorials, classroom activities and laboratory work.
      A typical weekly workload would be six to eight lectures and four to five hours of practical laboratories or workshops.
      Outside of classes, you’ll need to spend 20 to 25 hours per week preparing, writing up and reading.
      Each module is assessed by written examinations (typically 70 to 90 per cent of the final mark) and coursework (practical reports, field course reports, essays, problem sheets, online exercises and tests).
      Final-year students undertake a research or investigative project, assessed with a detailed written report, poster and interview.
      Resources and facilities
      The School offers excellent on-campus resources to aid your studies, including:
      newly refurbished lecture theatres
      up-to-date IT facilities
      modern, well-equipped labs.
