You will be taught through face-to-face interactive workshops, lectures, seminars and practical exercises. Interactive workshops take a variety of forms and are intended to enable the application of learning through discussion and small group activities. Seminars enable the discussion and development of understanding of topics covered in lectures, and practical exercises such as court applications are focused on developing subject specific skills and applying them in a professional context.
You have an opportunity to engage fully with the employability programme in the School of Law including volunteering in the School’s Legal Advice Centre. You will also have the option to attend the School of Law’s research seminar series and will be encouraged towards the end of the academic year to present a research seminar based on your dissertation research.
At the beginning of your studies, you will be assigned a personal academic tutor, and meetings with your personal academic tutor are scheduled on at least four occasions during your course.
The University places emphasis on enabling you to develop the independent learning capabilities that will equip you for lifelong learning and future employment, as well as academic achievement. In addition to the personal academic tutoring system, a mixture of independent study, teaching and academic support from Student Services and Library Services enables you to reflect on progress and build up a profile of skills, achievements and experiences that will help you to flourish and be successful in your career beyond university.
