How you will study
The platform also provides a channel of communication between the students and module leaders through blogs. This ensures a student centric approach, focusing on your abilities, needs and learning styles where the module leader is a facilitator of your learning.
Independent study is a key learning skill for academic study and your future employability. As part of the course, you are expected to work independently. This may take various forms including group collaborative tasks, research, reading, revision, assessment preparation, projects that feed into presentation and debates, lab or studio-based work.
