Teaching and Learning

The Urban Studies discipline provides a flexible, student-centred, and resource-based learning and teaching environment, which actively promotes a deep approach to learning. At each stage, learning and teaching resources include lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops and task-based activities. As the programme progresses, the emphasis switches from large group lectures to student-led tutorials and small group self learning activities, and students are encouraged to take greater responsibility for their own learning. The techniques adopted include library and computer-based facilities, specific project based courses designed to integrate the knowledge base covered at each stage and develop transferable skills, directed reading, case studies, dissertations, coursework and problem-solving classes.


The assessment policy for programmes on the Urban Studies Discipline is to tailor the methods of assessment to the subject being taught and the nature of the classes so that understanding, knowledge and subject-specific skills are assessed using a variety of approaches. These include essays, reports, written examinations, practical exercises, presentations, group and individual projects and the dissertation. What is best for each course is moderated by seeking a balance of modes within terms and stages.
