You will benefit from an emphasis on discussion, exploration and evaluation of issues, as well as presenting ideas in the style and format expected at university level. This interactive and student-focused teaching style, often in groups of 20 or fewer, will help you to become an independent and active learner, and prepare you for your undergraduate studies at a British university.
You will participate in lectures, seminars and workshops, and follow a similar timetable to a typical undergraduate. Assessment is through exams, coursework essays, portfolios, and oral presentations.
