The exact number of contact hours will depend on your choice of minor subject and any optional courses. Read more
Your contact hours will include a mixture of teaching methods best suited to the subject matter and to achieve the learning outcomes for each individual course. Teaching formats include one-to-one tutorials, group tutorials, seminars, and lectures of between 10 and 60 students for your degree courses.
