The majority of the teaching and learning material is delivered via the virtual learning environment (Blackboard 9). Students are provided with a study guide for modules which ensures they are aware of what material needs covering when. The mandatory modules are mostly assessed via coursework so students are able to benchmark their abilities early on and to develop their skills in managing their learning.
