Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The use of lecturing as the principal teaching method is justified by the technical nature of the subject and the need to provide initial exposition to assist students in achieving the knowledge base. The seminar workshops reinforce and refine what is done in lectures. The private study takes the form of directed study following on from lectures and in preparing for seminars.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The two papers with an attribution of 33%/67% will allow students to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and application. The structure will allow student progression on and over the year to be properly rewarded whilst providing assessment feedback at the start of Semester 2 and an incentive to study in Semester 1.
