The teaching methods include:

  • lectures to introduce and develop concepts and to explore the application of these concepts
  • specialist laboratories to develop skills and appreciate concepts
  • seminars to provide academic support
  • case study and project work to develop a deeper understanding of concepts and applications


All modules are 100% coursework based (case studies and projects) apart from the Entrepreneurial Leadership and Project Management which is assessed by a combination of both coursework and examination. All other modules are assessed by coursework, case studies and projects.
