MSc/PgDip Audio Acoustics
- Part-time study available
- Distance Learning
- International students can apply
The majority of teaching and learning takes place through tutorial and seminar groups. Assessment is generally in the form of assignments, which improve problem solving and other skills as well as providing a strong background in the subject area.
Distance learning and attending students benefit from the supply of a range of high-quality teaching materials, text books and software. Interaction with students is face-to-face wherever practical, but we also use web-based learning support packages (databases of materials, discussion boards etc) to support the whole cohort.
- Taught modules are assessed through assignments
- The project is assessed through a dissertation
