Teaching

We use a wide range of teaching methods, from lectures, to small group seminars or tutorials.

Most Philosophy modules at Levels 1 and 2 have two lectures and one tutorial each week. This may vary at Levels 3 and 4 where you typically have one lecture and more small working groups or seminars per week.

Some Politics modules will include specialised teaching such as trips, a simulation element (European Union politics), or working directly with a human rights advocacy organisation on their campaigning work as part of the curriculum.

Assessment

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

Assessment methods for modules can include:

  • essays
  • tutorial performance
  • exams
  • online journals / online discussions

Generally, modules will involve a mixture of assessment techniques in order to achieve an all-round picture of your abilities and to give you a chance to shine in the type of test that suits you best.

At Level 4 you will have an opportunity to apply the skills you have learned by writing a dissertation on a topic of your own choice.
