Teaching

In English, we use a wide range of teaching methods, from lectures, to small group seminars or tutorials, and film screenings.

Most modules in first and second year have two lectures and one tutorial each week. This may vary in third and fourth year, where you typically have one lecture and more small working groups or seminars per week.

In Mathematics we use methods such as:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • workshops
  • computer assisted learning

We also teach the use of professional mathematical software packages in order to allow you to explore mathematics far beyond the limits of traditional teaching. This also prepares you for the way in which mathematicians work across various industries.

Assessment

Assessments across both subjects are carried out by 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 to hone our students' skills.

Coursework can consist of:

  • essays
  • close analysis exercises
  • diary or journal entries
  • tests
  • class presentations
  • team projects

In Mathematics the assessment can consist of:

  • examination
  • coursework
  • homework
  • computer assignments
  • class tests
  • projects
