What is a seminar?
Seminars are designed to foster discussion and develop learning and understanding of key topics, which take place in smaller seminar rooms and last around 50 minutes in length (or longer depending on the module set-up). You will be expected to prepare work for each seminar and give feedback or present information on a certain subject. Preparation varies between readings, research, writing presentations, creating posters to name just a few. You are expected to talk in groups and voice your opinions within seminars; the emphasis is on student contribution.
Don’t worry if you are shy or don’t like talking in big groups, as soon as you make friends and meet the tutors you will feel more comfortable.
