Innovative learning

We are constantly reviewing and refreshing our teaching methods. These may involve discussion, learning from visiting lecturers, or even role-play of real-world scenarios.

Some courses also include a group or individual project, enabling you to apply your understanding to a specific question or challenge, and follow an area of academic interest.

Crossing subject boundaries

Increasingly, many of our courses are breaking down the divides between subjects. Instead, they use multiple perspectives to address the key issues facing our society such as modern healthcare, big data, and cyber security.

No matter what subject you are studying, there are opportunities to take your learning further, such as modules from outside your department or interdisciplinary modules.
