At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential. We have a strong tradition of supporting student employability, with relevant skills embedded in the curriculum and professional work placements included in all our undergraduate programmes.
The key themes of our strategy are student confidence, professionalism and social responsibility. To help students achieve their potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and directed activities.
This approach ensures that students fully engage in shaping their own learning, developing their critical thinking and reflective skills so that they can identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape their own development. Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here.
During your time at University, you'll be learning in the same dynamic team-work environment that professionals in the sector adopt in order to remain at the cutting-edge of technology and its application to business.
You will be taught by expert tutors with input from industry professionals. Your classes will be workshop-based, practically-focused and will give you freedom to explore your strengths and weakness and develop specialist interests alongside core skills.
Assessment will be linked directly to business case studies and challenges, will involve employers and will ensure all our students graduate having worked on real-world projects, able to step confidently into their first jobs.
Students have the opportunity throughout the course to engage in extra-curricular activities and volunteering, all of which provide the chance for students to build up their skills, CV and portfolio in preparation for competing in the jobs marketplace.
Extensive use is made of Moodle on this degree programme, the Leeds Trinity Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), to support 24/7 learning and to provide access to e learning resources both on and off-campus.

A variety of assessment methods are used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have developed. There is some scope for students to be involved in negotiating and evaluating some assessment.
In addition to each of your module assessments you will take a programme level assessment in each of the first and second year of your programme. This is designed to assess your understanding of everything you have been taught and to help you to understand how different elements of your degree fit together to make a coherent programme.
You will be given weekly directed activities to complete in each module. These will contribute marks towards the final module assessment and reward engagement with the content of the module. They will also help you to check your understanding of what has been taught. Some of these activities may include further reading or preparation tasks for seminars.
Some of the tasks will be completed online and may include quizzes which provide you with instant feedback on your understanding of the module content. In some modules lecturers may place some of the taught content on videos which you may be required to watch prior to attending a class. This will free up time for you to work on meaningful projects in class.
