Advanced Computer Science [MRes]
We use a variety of teaching forms, from face-to-face lectures via supervised and unsupervised labs, to self-study elements and supervised projects. Where appropriate, we use blended learning and enquiry based learning.
All our taught course units use coursework as a part of fomative assessment, to deepen and assess both knowledge and understanding and to teach and assess relevant skills.
Course units are assessed through coursework (50%) and end-of-semester examination (50%). However, flexibility is allowed in the delivery and assessment, allowing methods appropriate for each subject. If a course unit's specific features require it for assessments through 66% coursework and 34% exam, or other distributions.
