We look forward to meeting you when you join us in October 2020. This year we will be delivering a hybrid model, combining face-to-face and online teaching to ensure that you can undertake your course with us and keep safe.
Your experience will include an induction where you will be meeting various staff early on, including our Head of School, Chair of the Post-Graduate Programme Studies Board, your Programme Leader and your classmates. You will also be allocated a Personal Tutor and have a scheduled 1:1 with them, soon after. Your course will include weekly face-to-face and online module session time, online interactive sessions with guest lectures, practitioner talks and skills-based activities.
Online activities will be captured for you to revisit. Our software will allow you to ask questions and contribute to debates even when working online. We will continue to review the position on social-distancing and as the conditions develop will adapt our approach accordingly.
A range of teaching and learning methods including lectures, seminars and group work will be used to encourage you to develop intellectual and cognitive skills. All methods will employ to some extent the features like didactic exposition, interactive sessions, research and directed private study.
Case study-based learning is employed throughout the course and is intended to enable you to develop, inter alia, the ability to identify the issues in need of research, apply subject specific knowledge to a realistic and/or practical context, make critical judgments of the merits of a particular argument and present and make reasoned choices between alternative solutions.
The case studies may take the form of real cases or issues in debate at any given moment in time or may be hypothetical problems which are reflective of realistic problems.
