Teaching and assessment

In line with the programme structure, teaching is delivered through a combination of formal lectures, practical classes, supervised research in one-to-one and group settings, and a range of other means supporting the development of practical and transferable skills (e.g. training workshops, journal clubs, formal and informal presentations).    

The programme’s taught elements are assessed through a combination of some or all of the following:  individual or group coursework, class participation, formal written examination, and individual or group presentations. The programme’s research component is examined by appraisal of a dissertation and a professional report. In order to be awarded the MPhil degree, the students need to pass satisfactorily both the taught and research components of the programme.
