Technology enabled learning, e-learning and forum activities also support classroom learning. Class sizes are kept small with around 30 students in each, to encourage interaction. Larger scale lectures are delivered for some modules and are backed up by seminar and syndicate activities.

Contact Hours:

40 hours per week during module weeks (9.00am – 6.30pm).

There are 9 x modules over the course of the year. Between modules, you will have workshops, supervisor meetings, industrial visits, and will be working on Post Module Assignments and your dissertation.

Class Sizes:

Lectures (occasional): up to 200 students

Seminars and the majority of classroom based modules: 30 per class

Workshops and other syndicate activities: 6-8 per group

Assessment

There are no written exams. After each module you will be assessed by a written post-module assignment (PMA). This typically requires 40 – 60 hours of work and consolidates your learning. Some modules will also include an in-module individual or group assessment or test.

  • 9 x Post Module Assignments (3,000 – 4,000 words each) (50% of Master’s credit)
  • 20,000 dissertation (50% of Master’s credit)
