Learning & teaching
You will experience a range of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials, group-working, case studies and both individual and group presentations. Traditional teaching is supported by a virtual learning environment that is used to host a range of electronic supporting materials.
You will be assessed through a mixture of examinations and coursework. The taught element of the course is then complemented by a substantial piece of research leading to the completion of a dissertation.
