Education reaches far beyond the classroom.
Our Teaching and Learning Strategy has five core principles, learner empowerment, active engagement, learning in communities, education for sustainable development, and learning for equality, diversity and intercultural understanding.
We put this into practice through Teaching and Learning Innovation (TLI), which in turn incorporates various organisations including our Centre for Active Learning (CeAL) which is based at the Francis Close Hall campus.
Putting active learning at its heart, we constantly review how we deliver our courses both in and out of the classroom.
The University is committed to embedding sustainability within our teaching and learning programmes. Adopting an Education for Sustainable Development approach means that students learn through participating in real scenarios to think for themselves and develop their own personal and professional responses to sustainability.
Education is about much more than passing exams. We use a range of methods to assess your work, through essays, examinations, project work, group presentations, and field and laboratory reports.
