Teaching and learning

Teaching and research are based on three pillars: governance; social justice and sustainability; and the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).

You'll receive approximately two hours of weekly contact time per module, comprising lectures led by academic staff and smaller seminar groups.

For every hour spent in class, you’ll complete a further two to three hours of independent study. You'll have access to well-designed resources for this self-directed study, and we will pair you with an academic adviser to support your progress at all stages of your degree.


Assessment typically includes a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations in May or June.
