Teaching

There are different teaching methods depending on which modules you choose. Most will include:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • seminars
  • workshops
  • online resources

Some modules will include specialised teaching such as trips.

You can find out more from individual module descriptions.

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

We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website

This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.

Modules

In your first and second years you will also complement your specialist subjects by studying additional Humanities or Social Sciences subjects such as Philosophy or a modern language for example.

There are no compulsory English modules at levels 1 and 2, but a few are recommended. At levels 3 and 4 you will normally take 50% of your modules in English and 50% in Politics.
