Teaching and assessment

Teaching is delivered through a mix of formal lectures, more informal seminars, tutorials, workshops, discussions and e-learning packages. A number of modules use in-course situations to encourage deeper learning and develop on-the-job skills of future managers and entrepreneurs. Assessment is usually through a combination of individual and group work, presentations, elevator pitches, essays, reports and exams.

Teaching contact hours

This is a full-time course so you should be prepared to devote approximately 38 hours a week to your studies. You will typically have up to 14 hours contact hours of teaching most weeks for semester 1 and 2. Teaching is through a mix of lecturers, tutorials, seminars and lab sessions and the breakdown of these activities is shown in each module description.

In addition each module provides a 2 hour surgery each week available for individual consultation with the lecturer. You may also have some scheduled meetings with your programme leader, personal tutor, and/or careers throughout the year to discuss your academic progress and personal development.

Self-directed study: In order to prepare for, and assimilate, the work in lectures and seminars you will be expected to make regular use of our on-line resources, participate in classroom discussions including on our virtual learning environment (VLE) and engage in personal study, revision and reflection for approximately 24 hours per work during semester 1 and 2

In semester 3, you will undertake independent research for your Entrepreneurship Project or Executive Company Project. You will be allocated a dedicated academic supervisor to support you, who you will be able to contact on a regular basis.
