Teaching & learning
You will typically experience an average of 9.5 or more hours of high-quality contact time in each teaching week, in considerably smaller groups than are the norm for UK institutions at the undergraduate level, if you choose to study the Philosophy, Politics & History BA (Hons). The exact number of contact hours will depend on your choice of 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.
Timetables are usually made available to students during Freshers’ Week. Teaching can be scheduled to take place during any day of the week. However, when possible, Wednesday afternoons are usually reserved for sports and cultural activities.
