Lectures, Tutorials and Assessment

 

Lectures and tutorials

This module employs various teaching methods to ensure that student understanding of the material is tested and that there are opportunities for students to demonstrate and assess their analytical skills.

One Two-Hour Lecture Per Week
These provide the core information for each subject area and form the basis for independent study through additional reading. 

Example Classes and Problem Sets
Example classes are compulsory. Problem sets are handed out and discussed during the example classes; the onus here being very much on the students to provide the input. The problem sets are collected regularly and marked numerically. Some feedback is given to the students.

Background Reading
While lectures cover the core material, it is still very important for a deeper understanding that students supplement the lecture material with their own additional background reading. A sole reliance on lecture notes is not advised.

Examinations
There is a compulsory three-hour written examination at the end of the module that forms 100% of the assessment of the module. Students must attempt three out of seven questions.
