Full-time Master's Priogramme 2015-16 7 WMG Master’s Programme Learning Style The taught component of the programme is a blend of formal lectures, seminars, syndicate work, practical exercises and case studies to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the material. E-learning and forum activities are widely used to complement these activities. Modules are usually taught in an intensive one week block allowing you to be fully immersed in each subject area. Tutors are highly qualified and are supported by external speakers working at the forefront of their specialisation. Assessment There are no written examinations. Performance is assessed on completion of each module by a post module assignment. This is typically a further 40 to 60 hours of work and consolidates your learning. Some modules will also include an in-module individual or group assessment. Industrial visits Alongside the academic programme, WMG offers a series of industrial visits to locally based national and international companies. Guest speakers from industry and government are also regularly welcomed and students have the opportunity to attend lectures and seminars from distinguished researchers. Recent industrial visits have been made to Rolls-Royce, JLR, Pedigree Masterfoods, TNT Logistics, CEVA Logistics, E.ON, BMW, Evesham Technology, Severn Trent Water and Caterpillar to name but a few.
