Education in the UK places great importance on the ability of students to work independently
and to develop their own thinking.
Learning here isn't about feeding you information. Instead, you'll be encouraged
to read widely, to research thoroughly and to question what you learn at every opportunity.
Tutorials supplement lectures and in these you will be free to exchange ideas and
opinions with your teachers and fellow students. A process which, in turn stimulates
new ideas and new avenues for discussion.
This system promotes not only a thorough understanding of your subject, but also
encourages the development of analytical abilities and problem-solving skills that
are much prized by employers in later life.
