Teaching and learning Brunel Business School
Teaching is delivered through a combination of lectures, small group seminars, hands-on workshops, and one-to-one sessions with your tutor.
Many of our lecturers are internationally or nationally recognised for their innovative work and research, which results in challenging and stimulating course content.
Lecturers may consult for major companies and have practical business experience, potentially from running their own companies. All of this contributes to real-time, real world observations and teaching.
There will be email discussion groups and you’re encouraged to engage with online material using the university’s web‑based learning facilities, Blackboard and u-Link.
To support your course content, Brunel Business School regularly offers research talks on key management issues and presentations by outside speakers. Throughout the course, you will also be expected to undertake group work and individual projects and presentations.
Your personal tutor will be assigned in your first year and will be available to help with academic or personal issues. In your second year, this support will be continued through the Business School’s Pastoral Care programme – BBS Student Support – a team of specially chosen personal tutors who are available throughout the working week.
Additionally, if you choose a four-year sandwich course, you will be allocated an industrial tutor who will provide support during your work placement. In your final year you will receive one‑to‑one supervision for your major project.
Academic staff are available for a number of hours each week should you need to get advice. Their availability will be displayed on their office doors so you can make an appointment or drop by to see them if you have any concerns about your studies.
Should you need any non-academic support during your time at Brunel, the Student Support and Welfare Team are here to help.
