Course summary

This course is focused on non-traditional and international students and the modes of teaching and learning are designed to provide and facilitate high-quality teaching and learning in a supportive and productive environment which encourages self-awareness, reflective practice and cross-cultural awareness.The course is delivered through a mixture of lectures, tutorials/workshops and practical classes. Typically, lectures provide key information on a particular area and this is consolidated through tutorials and/or workshops and practical classes where appropriate, particularly for laboratory and IT skills. The course provides up to 18 contact hours per week, but further consolidation takes place through independent study and/or voluntary workshops provided outside the course’s formal contact hours. Emphasis is placed on developing confidence and classes are generally small, normally with 25 to 35 students to ensure individual needs can be met.Students who require additional language and academic support are normally provided with an additional 4 hours of seminar/ tutorial contact time and opportunities to take part in additional small group and individual tutorials as appropriate beyond the formal contact hours.Towards the end of the year, greater emphasis is placed on independent study, not just in preparation for classes and reading around the subjects, but also with students completing an individual project related to their future progression route.Throughout the course, all students also have access to an academic adviser who will provide them with academic support and guidance. Students will meet formally with their adviser two to three times a year. However, in addition, academic advisors and teaching staff are normally available to meet with students at certain times each week on a ‘drop-in’ basis.After the initial year, you should refer to the teaching and learning information for L200 BA Politics.
