This course is taught via seminars, workshops, support sessions, collaborative group work and discussion, tutorials, presentations, interactive practical sessions and directed private study. Your progress will be assessed with written assignments, including the dissertation, and oral and written presentations. Throughout the degree you'll have one-to-one support from academic staff.
