Yes, you will be expected to research and study on your own in preparation for your assignments and seminars. This is called independent study.
Independent study is time spent learning on your own or in a group with other students, without the presence of a member of teaching staff. It includes reading, researching, completing assignments and preparing for taught sessions. Independent study can take place in the library, your home or any other space.
The University Library provides a range of bookable learning spaces for independent study on your own or in a group.
