What is a seminar?

posted in: Blog 0

A seminar is like a larger scale tutorial. You’ll have 1 lecturer and anywhere up to 30 students (sometimes a few more on popular courses). Seminars can take different forms and may include students doing presentations on set topics; lecturers giving mini lectures; study questions being set so that students can discuss them in a large group. They are much less formal than lectures and designed to give you time to discuss texts and deepen your understanding of the topics at hand and the course itself.
