Teaching

In English, we use a wide range of methods, including lectures, small group seminars and tutorials, and film screenings.

Most modules in Levels 1 and 2 have two lectures and one tutorial each week.

This may vary in Levels 3 and 4, where you typically have one lecture and more small working groups or seminars per week.

In Psychology, throughout Levels 1-4 you will engage in research, moving from assigned and specified activities or studies to more independent practical work.

Most modules at Levels 1 and 2 have two lectures and one tutorial or workshop each week, including online workshops.

At Level 3 you will have lectures each week and tutorials centring around coursework. At Level 4, teaching is in much smaller groups and our module options are based on the research expertise of our staff, and vary slightly from year to year.

In your final year a supervisor will oversee a dissertation project where you will apply your research skills.

Assessment

Assessments are carried out through coursework and examinations and vary in type and weighting from module to module. Most English modules do not have any exams at all as we find continuous assessment works best.

Coursework may involve:

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

In Psychology the assessment coursework can consist of:

  • essays
  • posters
  • oral presentations
  • carrying out and reporting psychological experiments
