Teaching

For Economics, in Levels 1 and 2 teaching is initially through a combination of lectures and tutorials. These continue in Levels 3 and 4, supplemented by workshops and statistics sessions.

You will learn to study independently to broaden and deepen your understanding of the issues covered in the teaching.

There are industry guest lectures which you are encouraged to attend.

For History, 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 for Economics can be in the form of:

  • essays
  • problem-based exercises

  • group projects
  • exams.

Assessments for History are carried out by:

  • coursework
  • exams
  • essays

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