Different topics suit different teaching methods. Depending on the modules you choose you may get involved in presentations to your peers, different forms of group work, be asked to develop a video, podcast, or other creative format.
The 2022 National Student Survey reflects the effort we put into our teaching with over 90% of theology students and a whopping 97% of philosophy students agreeing staff are good at explaining things. We know how to teach difficult and in-depth concepts! And over 90% of students across both departments agree they've been able to contact staff when they've needed to.
"The staff have been great. Whenever I’ve had an issue (whether it be course based or not) I can write them an email and often within 20 minutes I’ve had a reply. This isn’t something I expected especially coming from school where it can take days for a teacher to reply."
- Francis Adam, Theology and Religious Studies
If you have worries abut your work we won't wait for them to become problems. You'll have a personal tutor who will support your academic progress and help find solutions to any issues.
"The personal tutoring role is important for building a sense of community between staff and students - we're not just distant lecturers talking at you in a classroom; we're here to help you grow and develop into your degree programme and beyond."
- Dr Tim Hutchings, personal tutor
