Typically, this will involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, undertaking research in one of the University's libraries, preparing coursework assignments or revising for examinations or tests.

Your independent learning is supported by a range of excellent facilities including the libraries and the University's virtual learning environment, Canvas.
