Teaching and learning
The core of most literary and historical course units is provided by lectures, which introduce and survey the main issues, and which are supported by small-group tutorials and seminars. Language classes are taught intensively, with group size capped to encourage participation. You are encouraged to involve yourself, under guidance, in independent study and original research. Socrates/Erasmus exchanges, or exchanges with USA, Canada and Australia are available.
Coursework and assessment
Assessment practices in different course units vary, but our basic aim is to achieve a good balance between formal examinations, continuous assessment, and project work. Written examinations are held at the end of most courses. The third-year dissertation provides 25% of the total marks for the degree.
