Teaching and work-related learning

We adopt an active blended learning approach, meaning you will experience a combination of face-to-face and online learning during your time at LJMU. This enables you to experience a rich and diverse learning experience and engage fully with your studies. Our approach ensures that you can easily access support from your personal tutor, either by meeting them on-campus or via a video call to suit your needs.​

Students are taught using a combination of lectures, tutorials, online activities and labs. Typically, teaching is in 3 hour blocks and it include a 1 hour lecture followed by 2 hours of lab activities. Students at level 4 and level 5 typically undertake approx. 15 hours of contact teaching per week. Students in the final year (level 6) have less contact hours per week, but more independent study.

Assessment
