Teaching and learning
As a student here, you will benefit from a consistently high-quality learning experience, which includes the use of dedicated technology to help you fulfil your potential.
We offer in-person teaching and the latest digital learning methods to provide you with the best university experience.
Your learning will be a social experience, in study groups and in-person with lecturers. Since the pandemic, we have also developed online tools and activities that have blended with traditional teaching methods to create a study environment that works for everyone.
Enhancing your experience
We are committed to blended learning and will get you set up with the equipment, applications, and access to resources that you need.
Your teaching will be delivered in a variety of ways, such as:
- a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) where all the resources for your course can be accessed, and you can submit assessments and coursework
- lectures and seminars, which may be in-person, through videoconference or a mix of the two
- on demand video, for some lecture recordings
- online collaboration, using tools like Teams, Zoom, OneDrive or discussion boards
- digital resources, such as ebooks, online journals, newspaper articles, TV programmes.
Benefits of blended learning
Our approach to blended learning encourages you to develop your own learning groups and share resources. It also allows you to make the most of in-person sessions, having prepared with digital materials in advance. Using these tools will improve your employment prospects, preparing you for a digital world.
Blended learning can be empowering. Online resources are flexible and accessible to students, so you can learn at your pace and engage with others. The online tools and resources we have put in place have been welcomed by our students and our staff can offer support for anyone that needs help.
Study skills support
We have a team in place to design your digital learning experiences, ensuring that it is interactive, inclusive and engaging.
We've also created guides to help you get fully prepared for your teaching and to address any concerns you may have about what your lessons will look like.
And to ensure a positive digital learning experience for everyone, we are working in partnership with students to continually evaluate and improve our digital tools, resources and teaching approaches.
We welcome applications from all students who are looking to succeed in their studies.
