Teaching

Teaching in Economics uses a variety of methods including:

  • lectures
  • workshops
  • tutorials
  • statistics sessions

You will learn to study independently to broaden and deepen your understanding of the issues covered in the teaching. We also offer an annual series of industry guest lectures which you are encouraged to attend.

For International Relations, there are different teaching methods depending on which modules you choose. Most will include:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • seminars
  • workshops
  • online resources

You can find out more from individual module descriptions.

The University of Dundee School of Business is committed to providing students with an exciting, meaningful, and interactive learning experience taking advantage of traditional and leading-edge learning technologies. This hybrid approach to education delivery, which includes both in-person and online material, has been adopted globally by top universities.

Our approach is flexible, attempting to meet the needs of all our domestic and international students. Moreover, our students are assured of an on-campus learning experience for all modules supplemented and complemented by state-of-the-art Cloud technology. A major advantage of ‘hybrid teaching’ is that it allows popular classes to remain small so that meaningful discussion and engagement between students and academics can occur.

Assessment

Assessments can be in the form of essays, problem-based exercises, case studies, presentations, group projects and exams. All of these will provide the basis for your final grade.

Different modules use different assessment levels. For example:

  • formal exams (where you answer essay-type questions from a previously unseen paper)
  • 'seen' exams (where you know the questions in advance but still must answer them in timed exam conditions)
  • prepared essays on a specific topic
  • marked work from seminars
  • online quizzes

Generally, modules will involve a mixture of assessment techniques in order to achieve an all-round picture of your abilities and to give you a chance to shine in the type of test that suits you best.

Modules

Study six modules in Level 1 and 2, of which two are compulsory Economics and two are compulsory International Relations modules. The remaining two modules in Levels 1 and 2 are chosen from the wide choice of MA modules from across subjects.
