Learning & Assessment

Cambridge Leadership College’s learning philosophy is based on assisting students to form broad conceptual understandings while gaining depth of knowledge, skills and attitudes that will benefit them in their chosen field. This is achieved by focusing on learning outcomes for the students and implementing a range of different teaching methods to cater to the different learning styles of individuals.

Masterclass

A lecturer will talk about the subject of study, and students are expected to take notes, even where handouts are provided. They are designed to give a basic understanding of the particular subject which a student will be expected to enhance through private research.

Seminars

These are interactive discussion groups. The tutor will discuss a pre-arranged topic with the class, who are expected to have prepared and read in advance in order to take part fully in the debate. Students may be asked to prepare a presentation for the class, which will then lead to the discussion.

Class Tests & Mock Examinations

Cambridge Leadership College administers class tests and mock examinations in order to prepare students with adequate knowledge and understanding for the final assessments.

Assessments

The method of assessment depends on the course you are pursuing. Some courses are assessed by unseen examinations only, while some others are by both assignments and examinations.
