Learning and assessment
Training Modules consist of:
- group exercises

Assessment strategies include individual papers, individual projects and reflective essays.
The development of the doctoral thesis will be guided by two supervisors and the assessment includes Viva Voce.
The School supports PhD students in a variety of ways. Most importantly, student support is via one-to-one guidance.
