Teaching Arrangement
Taught Postgraduate

Teaching is usually in the form of lectures, and sometimes tutorials and seminars. Some classes may be supplemented by laboratory and/or practical sessions. 


Your academic progress will be assessed using a variety of methods including assignments, presentations, projects, fieldwork, laboratory work, tests and/or examinations. 


The academic year starts in late August/early September, with two teaching semesters each of 13 weeks, and a 7-week summer term. Examinations are normally held in December and April/May every year, after the teaching semesters. For schemes/programmes with teaching in the summer, examinations are conducted in July.
