Teaching and Assessment


Teaching and Learning

Teaching will take place on weekdays with weekends left free for social activities and independent study. Each course will include 4 hours of teaching on most weekdays:

  • 3 hours of lectures
  • a 1 hour seminar in small groups

There will also be free study periods each day to help you to digest what you have learnt and continue with private or group study.


Assessment

Towards the end of the final week, we will provide time for revision and revision classes for courses which have an optional 2-hour examination on the final day which students can choose to sit. All students will be given a certificate of attendance during our farewell and presentation evening whether they sit the exam or not.


Teaching Facilities

Teaching will take place on the St Mary’s beautiful self-contained campus at Strawberry Hill. All of our comfortable teaching spaces are equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment. You will also receive a St Mary’s University student card on arrival and this will give you access to wider campus facilities including the libraries and study spaces.
