Teaching

Teaching methods include:

  • lectures
  • small group tutorials and seminars
  • lab and computing practical classes
  • fieldwork
  • coursework
  • workshops and presentations

Our staff are all active researchers, so you will be taught by experts in their fields, giving you project opportunities which link into areas of further research and employment.

Most modules at Levels 1 and 2 have three lectures and one tutorial or workshop group meeting each week. At Levels 3 and 4 you will have fewer lectures and will learn from tutorials, seminars, local field and laboratory work, and workshops.

Fieldwork is an important part of our course and we make use of the fantastic landscapes within easy reach of the campus for local day trips. We also travel further afield into the Scottish Highlands, Spain, or Iceland for week-long residential field trips.

Assessment

Exams are important, but are not the only way we assess your learning, and there is also a mix of coursework including:

  • essays
  • reports
  • fieldwork
  • problem-solving exercises
  • journals and blogs

The mix of exams and coursework types varies from module to module. You will be expected to complete many coursework assignments individually, but some assignments will be based on you working in small groups with other students.

At Level 4 you will apply the knowledge and expertise you have learned by writing a dissertation on a topic of your own choice.
