Teaching, Learning And Assessment Methods

The BSc in International Relations and Security teaching methodology involves a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, examinations, projects, presentations, assignments, case-study applications and independent research. In addition, it is designed to provide an academic experience going beyond that of the traditional classroom, in which the flow of information is primarily from the instructor to the student.

The intention of the Programme is that each participant will contribute to the education of the entire class though active participation in the learning procedure. This will establish the understanding that an BSc in International Relations and Security requires a holistic and interdisciplinary approach.

The interactivity and formative assessment form part of the learning and teaching methodology. 30% of the students’ final grade in each course corresponds to their performance in the midterm assessment, whereas 70% corresponds to their performance in the final exams. In order to secure a passing grade in a course, students need to secure a passing grade (i.e. 50% or higher) in both the midterm assessment and the final exams.
