Psychology (C817) Teaching & Assessment
We make considerable use of computers and other aspects of information technology as vital tools of study and communication. We use word processors, email and databases as a matter of routine and all first-year students are introduced to these systems. You will also have access to the campus computer network, which allows you to communicate with staff at any time from anywhere in the University.
Modules are taught using a variety of methods including lectures, seminars and practicals. For example, in Year One, a single module will normally involve one lecture per week of either one or two hours with two seminars per term. Assessment across all years includes a range of different methods including multiple choice tests, essays, practical reports and unseen exams. The final degree classification will be based on the second and third year marks weighted 40:60 in favour of third year work.
The Faculty Handbook contains more details about the teaching and assessment for each module.
