A variety of learning and teaching methods are used, including lectures, tutorials, computer laboratory sessions and independent study.
The final year of the course includes an individual project, completed by all students and a range of modules, which allow you to pursue your own career interests. The choice varies from technical subjects, such as web information management, to more business oriented topics, including information systems strategy and services, information security management and data mining.
Assessments are via individual assignments, group work, projects, tests and exams.
You will normally attend around 12-16 hours of timetabled taught sessions each week, and are expected to undertake at least 24 further hours of directed independent study and assignments as required.
