Our modules use a variety of innovative teaching methods and assessment, including coursework, groupwork and exams. Here are some examples of what you'll be able to do.
Learning programming for the first time is exciting but can also be challenging, especially when there are others around who have programmed for years. Our solution to this is to self-stream the first programming module, so that beginners receive all the extra support they need and those with previous experience are given taxing tasks to broaden their knowledge.
At a research-led University, many students are just as interested in the academic process as in the outputs of the cutting-edge science performed at the University of Southampton. The multimedia systems course introduces undergraduates to the art of writing academic papers and the peer review process, and culminates in a day-long student-run conference with poster sessions, talks and keynotes!
