We will be adopting a hybrid approach to teaching delivery, through a combination of both face-to-face and online delivery teaching mechanisms. This approach to teaching and learning has been considered the most appropriate way of ensuring we all remain safe while allowing you to commence your studies. During your induction week activities, you will have the opportunity to meet the various staff at the University including the Head of School, and the programme leader for MSc Finance and Management.
As part of the hybrid approach to delivering the MSc Finance and Management course you will receive:
-Weekly face-to-face module session times with tutors and fellow students allowing you to engage with other students studying the courses.
-Online and virtual module sessions covering a range of activities relevant to each module you study within our Virtual Learning Environment.
-Online interactive sessions from guest speakers guest lectures, practitioner talks, and skills-based activities shared across the whole postgraduate Business Management suite.
-Directed reading and activities to enable you to actively participate in independent study.
Online activities will be captured allowing you to revisit these at future time points to reinforce learning. Our software will allow you to actively participate and engage with tutors and other students within the scheduled online sessions. We are continually reviewing the position on social distancing and as conditions develop, we will adapt our approach to teaching and learning accordingly. Please remember you will be with us for the whole year. We are passionate and dedicated to providing a range of experiences and opportunities that are appropriate to enable you to develop the knowledge and skills to complete the first stage of your course.
We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods which include lectures, seminars, class discussions, case studies, group work, presentations and applied study.
Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters requires a higher level of independent working.
Assessment methods include assignments, reports, presentations, and peer- and self-assessment.
