Learning and assessment
This course will use a mixture of examinations and coursework assignments to assess students.
In some modules students have the freedom to choose topics or datasets to work with, allowing them to explore areas relevant to their personal or professional interests.
We have a commitment to strong pastoral care for all of our students, which includes a Personal Tutor for all students, regular contact hours for tutor groups and our supportive student service teams who are always ready to help with any questions and provide the advice that you need.
In addition to standard study support through taught sessions, our Virtual Learning Environment allows students to access resources, participate in group work and submit work from anywhere in the world 24/7.
University central services are rich with support teams to assist students with every aspect of their journey through our degree programmes. From our Career and Employability Service, through our strong Students' Union, to our professional and efficient Student Finance team, there are always friendly faces ready to support you and provide you with the answers that you need.
Our staff are research active and experts in their field; their knowledge and expertise directly inform our curriculum and the content delivered to students.
Our Artificial Intelligence Research Group helps embed research-active topics into our modules as well as the dissertation projects undertaken by students on the course, using links to local and national industry partners informing their design and delivery.
