How you will learn
In a typical week, learning takes place through a combination of lectures and seminars. You’ll be able to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller group sessions. Contact hours may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.
The typical student intake per year is up to 10. Lectures are normally attended by 30-90, and seminars/tutorials by 15-30, based on our 2017 intake. This varies by module, particularly if they are shared between degrees.
Outside of timetabled sessions, you’ll need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams. Our Stockwell Street library and online resources will support your further reading and research.
You can also join a range of student societies, including the Trading and Investment Banking Society.
Your overall workload consists of contact hours (lectures, seminars, etc), independent learning, and assessments. For full-time students, the workload should be roughly equivalent to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of modules you are studying.
On this course, students are assessed by:
- Lab-based exercises.
We aim to provide feedback on assignments and to release examination results within 15 working days.
