You will study through lectures, tutorials, practical sessions, seminars and projects. You need to spend a significant amount of time working independently, reading and preparing for assessments. You will be assessed primarily by coursework. You will work on a significant research project and major project of your choice, where strong independent thinking, critical analysis and project management skills will be important.
