Learning and Teaching

One of the aims of SSBU is to train our students to a high standard of education in multidisciplinary degree programmes so that they become confident, independent teachers and researchers after their graduation. In order to achieve this aim, we would follow teaching and learning methods and approaches that put students at the centre. This means that responsibility for the learning path is in the hands of students. Moreover, teaching focuses on skills and practices, such as essay writing and research projects, that enable lifelong learning and independent problem-solving.


For the PhD degree programme, the student will also be trained in research skills and language skills (if needed).




Methods of assessment vary between courses. For MA degree programmes, they typically involve the submission of regular essays (one essay every three weeks), some coursework, class tests and a written examination. A few courses are assessed through only one or two of these methods.
