The induction programme begins the week before the start of formal studies, introducing you to our teaching methods and explaining how you can gain maximum value from the course, including support on careers guidance. Assessment is based mainly upon individual and group assignments, examinations and the dissertation or business project. Students have access to dedicated research suites providing workspaces, computers and storage, and a range of supporting activities, such as seminars and a research methods programme.
