We offer a broad range of learning environments including traditional lecture and tutorial format, student-led learning, interactive class sessions, practical, and a substantial element of field work. We encourage independent study, meaning that you take responsibility for your own learning. Study is assessed using a variety of methods enabling you to demonstrate progress in different ways. Course work typically includes lab reports, essays, literature reviews, group work or oral presentations. Formal exams typically include questions that require short answers, an essay or data analysis. In your final dissertation you are individually supported by a research active member of staff. You will be versed in handling and analysing large and complex data sets, a much sought after skill.
