Course outline

Throughout your time at the College and Brunel University London, you will develop a range of skills that are valued by employers – such as critical thinking, analysis and effective communication.


This teaching method will deliver basic module material. Teaching is interactive with opportunities for individual and group formative exercises. Teaching rooms will have access to electronic/online resources to support the lectures.


You will attend seminars to develop teamwork skills and confidence through sharing constructive feedback with fellow students. These sessions will help you prepare for specific topics and provide an easy atmosphere for you to interact with your classmates.


Tutorials enable one-to-one dialogue and feedback. An appropriate number of 10-minute tutorial slots will be arranged with you as part of your taught hours.

Self-directed study

You will be expected to undertake a minimum number of hours in individual study per week in order to support the skills, knowledge and understanding presented in each lecture and tutorial session. These hours are expected to increase as you approach formal assessments. The ability to expand your learning by creating effective self-directed study patterns is a transferable skill that is fundamental to academic success.

Library resources

You will have access to Brunel University Library, which is well stocked with books and journals and citation indexes for researching primary and secondary sources. There also bookable group study rooms and specialist Librarians who can help with bespoke requests. The library is open 24/7 during term time, enabling full flexibility.
