The course is taught through lectures, seminars, group-project work and individual study. During the course you will be assigned a Personal Tutor and Dissertation Supervisor to support you throughout your chosen area of study.
The course is made up of six 20-credit modules (Part one) and a 60 credit dissertation (Part two).
Learning is continually assessed throughout the course and each module assignment has a pass mark of 50%.
Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.

Skills and practical sessions
Dissertation and project supervision
