Curriculum design 

Curriculum review is part of the University’s Teaching Transformation Programme and is one area that schools might prioritise in their teaching development agenda. This might mean, for example, adding an international dimension, supporting students in the transition into HE, or reviewing the distribution of modules within programmes.

Research suggests that students learn best when they are actively participating in their education. We encourage students to take ownership of their learning as part of developing skills of independent thinking.
