Committed to exceptional teaching and learning

Committed to exceptional teaching and learning - postgraduate students

 

We are committed to providing an outstanding education no matter what the year brings. We won’t let COVID-19 get in the way of you learning and obtaining a world class degree.

Your health and wellbeing is our top priority and we are planning our degree programmes so that you can stay safe and keep studying, learning and progressing throughout the year. Each course will offer a mix of live teaching both on campus and online, digital resources such as videos, podcasts and interactive content, personal teaching support, plus engagement with fellow students from around the world. We call this a blended learning approach which will enhance and complement your education.

We promise you an excellent quality of teaching, even if we adjust the way we teach some modules. Now, we want to provide you with information to enable you to get a feel for what your experience will be and on this page you can find details about the expected teaching and learning approach on your course.

Our commitments on the teaching and learning experience

Our campuses will open safely, and in line with government guidance we will enable social interaction, access to facilities such as libraries and face-to-face teaching. The on campus experience is important for you to engage with peers as well as teachers and to be part of the student learning community.

We’re making a commitment that you’ll be taught by the same excellent lecturers, professors and researchers, that your university experience with us will be thought-provoking, stimulating and exciting, and that you’ll be inspired by your peers and academics as they challenge theories, engage in pioneering research and seek to innovate and drive change for the future.

In 2020/21, you will receive a blend of live, face-to-face teaching both on campus and online. This will be supported by digital content that you can access in your own time or with fellow students. We have been creating and preparing accessible, interactive and flexible learning with a focus on the quality of teaching and providing a great experience.

We plan to provide core laboratory work and practical sessions on campus in a safe environment. These will be prioritised in the timetable and we will ensure you obtain the skills to meet professional and clinical standards.

We also plan for most field trips to go ahead, but where this is not possible alternative locations will be offered, potentially local options or smaller groups or individual work. In some cases we may offer virtual field trips, using the very latest technology, which we have been developing since long before COVID-19 for environmental reasons and because of the educational potential.

We are working with partner organisations and institutions to make sure placements in industry as part of your course go ahead as planned wherever possible. If this is not possible we will contact you directly and discuss alternative or equivalent options.

Dissertations, projects and written work are often submitted online and this will continue. Presentations, where required, will be a blend of in person and in class or online using technology such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom. Many assessments or examinations are likely to be online from September and this is something we had been developing as part of our commitment to accessible learning and to meet student and academic needs. Your tutors will explain the options and requirements for each module.

Your education induction and welcome will mostly be on campus and face-to-face as long as safe to do so and in line with government guidance at the time. This will be supported by digital resources and using technology such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom to interact with larger groups. It will be possible to access the full induction experience online if you cannot come onto campus at the start of term.

We know that some students may not be able to attend campus for health, personal or logistical reasons related to COVID-19. In some circumstances you may need to study remotely and we can offer flexibility to assist with your personal requirements. We are an inclusive university and will seek to meet your individual needs.

If you are unable to be on campus by the start of your programme, please email coronavirusenquiries@exeter.ac.uk with your Exeter Student Number, Programme, intended enrolment date if post start date and intended on-campus date. This information will be shared with your personal tutor and relevant departments to ensure you are supported in this transition. Remote learning may not be possible in all cases, for example because of professional, statutory or regulatory requirements on certain programmes, but we will be happy to talk to you about your options.

For those who require a visa, you will need to include the date that you intend to travel to the UK in your visa application. The validity of Tier 4 entry visas has been extended from 30 to 90 days, so if you do have to delay your intended travel date you will not have to apply for a new entry visa if you are able to arrive within 90 days of this date.

For the majority of postgraduate taught courses your teaching will start on 12 October, however, some programmes do have an earlier start date in September. This year, some courses are also offering the option of a January 2021 start date. You should have received an email confirming the start date for your programme, please check for the exact date.

You can find a full list of start dates on our web page www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/applying/2020entry/

Department and programme commitments to quality teaching and learning for postgraduates

Each department or programme has summarised their expectations for high quality teaching and learning from September 2020. Please see below an A-Z list of departmental and programme teaching and learning descriptions and a link to module pages for more information.

Final module choices for all students will not start until September 2020.

A-Z of subject disciplines and programmes

We have re-designed our modules for maximum flexibility so they can be studied remotely and online, but with the ability to enjoy face to face teaching on campus and enhanced by digital technology. Your time will be split between live teaching and learning with rich digital content made available at all times to ensure fair, equitable and convenient access. You will be joining and co-creating a vibrant learning community so that you are well-connected both on campus and online.

You will experience lectures, seminars and discussions in small groups – online or in-person. In addition, podcasts, video masterclasses, activity packs, narrated PowerPoints, discussion forums, individual and group work will enable you to complete tasks in your own time or with fellow students. Staff will be available for one to one support each week.

In addition to the core teaching on programmes, we will offer:

Congratulations on achieving your place to study at the University of Exeter Business School. We're really looking forward to meeting you and are delighted that you chose Exeter.

We wanted to share with you important information on how we are preparing considering Coronavirus and to flag our online pre-arrival induction.

In light of Coronavirus, we have re-designed our programmes and modules for maximum flexibility so they can be studied remotely and online, but with the option to enjoy substantial amounts of face-to-face teaching on campus.

All programmes will have live small group teaching, and these will be on campus when conditions allow. Some classes may be run online, using, for example, Microsoft Teams or Zoom. For maximum flexibility and accessibility, we are replacing the traditional face to face lecture with online learning curated by the module lead. This will usually be a mixture of videos, quizzes, exercises and guided reading. This content is recorded and the activities can be studied at a time that works best for you.

We’ve worked with many of our current students to build this exciting, flexible learning experience.

The seminars will be provided online via Zoom or Teams, although some may take place on campus if it is safe to do so. You will have preparatory work prior to the seminars for debate and discussion. Each week clear guidance will be given prior to the seminars and following the seminars, discussion forums will allow opportunities for student reflection and Q&As. You will have online progress meetings with the Programme Director as well as online group tutorials.

Where appropriate and where we can safely accommodate social distancing, you will be able to undertake computer-based practical work on campus to support your dissertation or research project. Throughout your dissertation or research project you have regular meetings with your supervisor which will take place online or face-to-face on campus, if it is safe to do so.

Individual modules and programmes may vary so we recommend that you check your course webpages for more detailed information: http://geography.exeter.ac.uk/currentstudents/modules/2020_21/

Geography on the Streatham Campus: MSc Global Sustainability Solutions

As part of your university and academic induction, you will be able to take part in a range of activities that will help you settle into university life and your studies. You will be allocated a Personal Tutor who will meet with you online or in person throughout the year to discuss your study progress and any pastoral or wellbeing issues.

Your lectures will be delivered in bite-sized blocks that will be accessible online at any time and supported by live Q&A sessions with your tutor delivered via Zoom or Teams. For some modules, lectures may also be delivered face-to-face on campus, if it is safe to do so. One-to-one tutorials and small group tutorials will take place face-to-face on campus, provided it is safe to do so, or online via Zoom or Teams.

Due to the current social distance guidelines, we are planning an alternative option for our planned three-day residential at Kaleider which would ordinarily take place in Term 1. We are currently looking at options for running a residential opportunity later in the academic year.

Where appropriate and where we can safely accommodate social distancing, you will be able to undertake laboratory or computer-based practical work on campus to support your dissertation or research project. Throughout your dissertation or research project you will have regular virtual or face-to-face meetings with your supervisor, provided it is safe to do so.

At Camborne School of Mines, we have re-designed our modules for maximum flexibility so they can be studied remotely and online, but with the option to enjoy substantial amounts of teaching on campus. For every module in your timetable we are planning a minimum of two hours of live contact time with your teacher each week. As well as this, all staff will be accessible through weekly ‘open offices’ when they will be able to answer questions and talk about your progress on the course.

Lectures will continue to be a regular part of university life.   To create the flexibility needed we are replacing the traditional on-campus lecture with online learning curated by the module lead.  This will usually be a mixture of videos, quizzes, exercises and guided reading. This content is not live and can be studied at a time that works best for you.

Small group work, such as practicals, tutorials and problem-solving classes, will be on campus when conditions allow. Some classes may be run online, using, for example, Microsoft Teams or Zoom. We’ve worked with many of our current students to build this new, exciting, flexible learning experience.  We’ll also be making use of discussion forums and chats to create more opportunities for you to meet and come together with other students online.

Fieldwork and practical work are an important part of your course and we are prioritising this for in-person teaching.   This teaching will be in small, designated groups with different staff members assigned to supervise each group.  Lab-based demonstrations and experiments will take place on-campus provided it is safe to do so.  In the event of this not being possible, virtual labs will take place with step-by-step recorded experiments supplemented with online support sessions to assist with understanding results, data handling and conclusions. These will also be available to students unable to participate in person.  We plan for you to get into the labs, both physically and virtually right from the start of your course.

To ensure we are able to safely deliver field trip experiences, these may take place at a different time of the academic year. This is being regularly reviewed.

Individual modules and programmes may vary so we recommend that you check your course webpages for more detailed information: https://intranet.exeter.ac.uk/emps/studentinfo/subjects/

We’re promising the same excellent quality of teaching that we have always delivered and these last few months we have been enjoying creating a vibrant online postgraduate education community.

We are largely keeping our contact days the same but where we are unable to deliver these on campus, we will be doing live online teaching and learning activities with individual tasks and small group activities.

Lectures will be broken down into bite-sized chunks online and supported by small group sessions and workshops enhanced by a dynamic ‘blended’ learning approach with exceptional digital resources (videos, discussion boards and more) created by our experts to support independent study.

Any practical skills demonstrations will take place virtually with videos and workshops.

You will still have face-to-face meetings with your dissertation supervisors which may be supported by email/phone/Teams/Zoom. Some laboratory and data projects may have to be replaced by literature or data projects only.

Written assessments will take place online and presentation assessments may be narrated or scripted files or given ‘live’ online via Microsoft Teams.

Additional information for students starting on LLM programmes in January 2021

As you will be starting the LLM in January, we would like to make you aware that you will complete your dissertation before finishing all the taught elements of the programme.

The LLM allows you to take the dissertation without requiring a focus from other modules on the course as there is no prerequisite to the dissertation module. You will choose your dissertation topic during the first term (so we can allocate you an appropriate supervisor) and you will then submit your dissertation before the official deadline in August (date will be confirmed by the Law School).

If you are unsuccessful in completing the dissertation module, you can still complete your final term modules to graduate with either a Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) or a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits).

Congratulations on achieving your place to study at the University of Exeter Business School. We're really looking forward to meeting you and are delighted that you chose Exeter.

We wanted to share with you important information on how we are preparing considering Coronavirus and to flag our online pre-arrival induction.

In light of Coronavirus, we have re-designed our programmes and modules for maximum flexibility so they can be studied remotely and online, but with the option to enjoy substantial amounts of face-to-face teaching on campus.

All programmes will have live small group teaching, and these will be on campus when conditions allow. Some classes may be run online, using, for example, Microsoft Teams or Zoom. For maximum flexibility and accessibility, we are replacing the traditional face to face lecture with online learning curated by the module lead. This will usually be a mixture of videos, quizzes, exercises and guided reading. This content is recorded and the activities can be studied at a time that works best for you.

We’ve worked with many of our current students to build this exciting, flexible learning experience.

In addition to the core teaching on programmes, we will offer:

  • a comprehensive induction to prepare you for all eventualities studying across this range of formats
  • a wide range of academic development workshops to support your learning
  • ongoing access to your own Academic Personal Tutor
  • events with fellow students on your chosen programme
  • continued provision of our industrial placements and study abroad options (again re-designed to provide flexibility in terms of study duration and location)

Updated versions of our programmes and modules are now live on our website. In most cases your programme structure will be the same irrespective of whether you start your studies in October 2020 or January 2021. In some instances, there will be minor changes to module sequence and availability. We make any changes to module availability clear on our website, and to module sequencing during your programme induction at the start of term, though if you have any queries regarding programme modules, please get in touch at modulerevision@exeter.ac.uk

Finally, ahead of your arrival, we recommend that you complete our online pre-arrival Business School induction. This is full of important information and advice about your studies and life as a student here. It also contains activities and discussion boards so you can start to get to know other students even before you arrive at Exeter.

We strongly recommend that you register as soon as possible and make the most of this fantastic opportunity to learn more about us, your peers and your programme.

We have re-designed our modules for maximum flexibility so they can be studied remotely and online, but with the option to enjoy substantial amounts of teaching on campus where conditions allow.

Lectures will continue to be a regular part of university life.  To create the flexibility needed we are replacing the traditional on-campus lectures with online lectures alongside extra material created by teachers.  This will include videos, exercises, quizzes and material for guided self-study. You can access this material at any time and study at a time that works best for you. For every module you take, we are planning a minimum of one hour of live contact time with your lecturer each week. In addition, you will be able to talk to academic staff at weekly ‘open offices’ where you will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your progress on the course.

Small group work, including tutorials, problem-solving classes and computing labs will be on campus, again, when conditions allow. Where necessary, some of these classes may be run on-line, using Microsoft Teams or Zoom. We are working together with our current students to ensure that we make the most of these new facilities and to make the most of discussion forums and chats to create more opportunities for you to meet teachers and other students on-line.

Where appropriate and where we can safely accommodate social distancing, laboratory and computer suite practical work will be delivered on campus. Data collection will take place face-to-face or online. If this is not feasible, we will provide pre-prepared data sets.

For programmes which include field trips, we are regularly reviewing the position to ensure we can safely deliver the experience. If this is not possible, we will consider alternative locations and durations for our field trips or, if necessary, provide virtual, online field trips.

Where we can ensure that this can be done safely, you will be able to undertake laboratory or other research for your dissertation or research project on campus, otherwise this research will be carried out online.

You will receive guidance on a programme and module-by-module basis. This will include details of how your programme and modules will run and will outline expectations.

Your lectures will largely be delivered in bite-sized blocks that will be accessible online at any time and will be supported through live chat discussions and quizzes. Where it is safe to do so, some of your lectures will take place on campus. One-to-one and small group tutorials will take place online via Zoom or Teams and we aim to arrange opportunities to safely meet your tutor face-to-face on campus.

Laboratory sessions will be delivered on campus, provided it is safe to do so. These sessions will typically involve pre and post learning activities. Where possible, you will also visit the laboratory for data collection. If it is not possible for you to attend, recorded films will be provided. Some computer-based sessions/modules may be delivered online.

Modules which include work placements as part of the assessment will run as normal, providing it is safe to do so. We are also exploring the opportunities for online work placements. Where neither of these are possible, alternative experiences/assessments will be provided.

Where we can safely accommodate social distancing, you will be able to undertake laboratory practical work on campus for your dissertation or research project. Throughout your dissertation or research project you will have regular meetings with your supervisor either face-to-face on campus, if it is safe to do so, or virtually.
