Taught courses are made up of seminars, tutorials and lectures, typically lasting for one year (if completed on a full-time basis). Assessments are in the form of exams or coursework (or both depending on the course). Usually, the programme will consist of core and elective modules, which will allow you to specialise in areas of particular interest. Guest speakers and workshops are also incorporated into many of the degrees.
Research students will undertake an independent project, under the guidance of an academic supervisor specialising in their field of study. Work is not formally examined until the final thesis is submitted. A number of the courses also offer you the opportunity to teach undergraduate students.
The university currently offers a number of distance courses, including creative writing, education and public health. Courses are completed online, meaning you can study anywhere in the world. The university virtual learning environment will give you access to all the necessary learning resources, lectures, journal articles, interactive quizzes and you will be able to interact with fellow students on the online campus.
