In the undergraduate programme the emphasis is placed on teaching via a range of methods and approaches including:
All students attend a residential field course in year one, currently held in the Lake District. There are a number of field trips throughout years two and three depending on your module choices.
The school recognises the importance of student support and has a continued commitment to e-learning.
There are online resources for all modules, including interactive learning materials, discussion areas and real time online chat. These online resources are constantly being expanded to cover more modules and offer you a truly interactive learning experience in support of lectures.
As a school we constantly strive to embrace new technologies in a way that will support our students and their learning. We are running a system that allows students to use text messaging to ask questions anonomously in lectures, as well as podcasting educational content to support conventional lectures. Technology is also used to support field trips both while underway and also back at the school.
We use a wide range of assessments including:
Overall, most of our graduates will have experienced about 60% coursework and 40% examination assessments.
