Learning, Assessment and Support

The University of Liverpool Management School encourages learning through a range of innovative teaching methods in a modern environment. We provide a professional learning experience that aims to give you an insight into real business practice.

As part of our recently opened extension, the School now houses two new lecture theatres with state-of-the-art AV systems. Students also have access to an exclusive Bloomberg suite, comprising 40 Bloomberg terminals with access to financial data and economics and business news.

Further teaching facilities include a marketing suite, SAP computer suite and flexible teaching rooms for seminars and group study.


Assessment

As part of your studies, you will undertake a series of assessments each weighting towards your overall mark. These will take place throughout each semester and will be dependent on your selected modules.

Module assessments may include exams, which can be multiple choice, long and short answer questions or essay based, learning logs, case studies, and presentations. Students can also be required to write a dossier using a collection of sources or keep a reflective portfolio over a period of time.


Support

Additional support is available through our Study Skills sessions, exclusive to the Management School. This programme of activities is supported by essential study skills workshops delivered by our dedicated Learning and Teaching Support Officers. These cover a wide range of skills to help you in your academic studies and include: 

  • Critical Thinking
  • Exam preparation and revision techniques
  • Academic writing processes
  • Developing your presentation skills
  • Time management
  • Team working
  • Critical analysis and report writing
  • Maths clinics

The Learning and Teaching Support Officers can support you personally as well as academically throughout your studies, with one-to-one appointments offered on a confidential basis.

Disability and Dyslexia Support

The Management School is committed to fulfilling its duty to support students with a disability and/or specific learning difficulty. Dedicated Disability and Dyslexia Contacts within the school liaise with the central Disability Advice and Guidance Team to implement specific adjustments and recommended support. Each student with a disability and/or specific learning difficulty will receive an individual, tailored support plan and it is the role of the Disability and Dyslexia Contacts to ensure that these recommendations are properly implemented within the school.
