The University mainly provides teaching through lectures. Numbers of students varies from a few to upwards of 300.
Lectures are usually given by University or College teachers, who lecture on topics close to their own research work and interests. Many lecturers will also teach supervisions in colleges. Within the subject, there can be flexibility to tailor your learning by taking papers that fit with your interests.
Some subjects use seminar teaching of 10-20 students, usually given in University departments and/or faculties. These are usually a complement to lectures, and are more interactive.
In Science & Technology courses, you will also be taught via practical & laboratory classes. These are designed to give you the opportunity to perform experiments and to develop hands-on skills.
