Teaching and Assessment
Our students experience a stimulating teaching environment which blends conventional lectures and tutorials with online material in our Virtual Learning Environment. Programmes are regularly reviewed by research-active staff in Edinburgh, Dubai and Malaysia to ensure that the learning material is relevant and current.
Assessment is through a balance of examinations, coursework and a substantial research project.
