Teaching

Our modules are based on the many and varied topics our staff are researching. You will always study with a recognised expert.

We use a range of teaching methods, from lectures, to small group discussion, and film screenings.

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 or seminars per week.

You will be given plenty of opportunities to conduct research in areas that interest you.

Study trips, including trips to local archives and museums, are an important part of the history course.

Assessment

Assessments across both subjects are carried out through coursework, examinations, and continuous assessment and vary in type and weighting from module to module.

In English most modules do not have any exams at all as we find continuous assessment works best.

Methods of assessment in both subjects may include:

  • essays
  • close analysis exercises
  • source exercises
  • diary or journal entries
  • wiki projects
  • tests
  • presentations
  • team projects
  • examinations

In Level 4 you apply the skills you have learned by writing a dissertation on a topic of your own choice.
