How you learn

All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.

Staff are experts in their fields and bring their research-based knowledge to all the teaching and learning activities undertaken on the course.

Lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials combine to challenge your understanding of the social world and help you develop self-confidence and motivation – essential to all graduate jobs.

You will also discover new knowledge and ideas through a variety of field trips, events and guest speakers arranged throughout the year.

More importantly, staff support you to be the best you can every step of the way, whether working with others in small groups or developing your own independent learning style.
