Teaching

Teaching is through a combination of:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • workshops
  • statistics sessions

We also offer an annual series of industry guest lectures which you are encouraged to attend.

For History modules we use a wide range of teaching methods, from lectures to small group discussions.

Most modules in Levels 1 and 2 have two lectures and one tutorial or workshop group meeting each week. In Levels 3 and 4 you will have fewer lectures and more small discussion group meetings per week.

Study trips, including trips to local archives and museums, are an important part of the course. The student-run History Society organises a wide range of social events, study skills sessions and an annual History careers workshop.

Assessment

Assessments can be in the form of:

  • essays
  • problem-based exercises
  • case studies
  • presentations
  • group projects
  • exams

All of these will provide the basis for your final grade.

Assessments for History are carried out by coursework and examinations, and vary in type and weighting from module to module. Methods of assessment include, essays, presentations, source exercises, wiki projects, journals/blogs, examinations
