Student Experience

The fully online MSc is developed and delivered by Imperial College, therefore the learning outcomes will be a level 7-master's level.

As an established and global learning provider, Coursera uses high-touch and innovative techniques to provide a top notch educational experience. Teaching and learning on the programme will be delivered through the Coursera platform using a range of methods including:

  • pre-recorded lectures and video capture
  • slide-decks with audio commentary
  • practical exercises in coding and analysis
  • asynchronous peer-to-peer and staff-moderated discussion forums
  • synchronous scheduled live tutorials
  • discussion forums and office hours
  • discussion prompts

The assessment methods, also delivered through the Coursera platform, include:

  • online quizzes
  • video blogs
  • case study review discussions
  • coding exercises
  • written reports

Students will learn as a cohort through discussion boards (which can be used as assessment through graded discussion prompts) and peer assessed exercises. These features, ranging from live classroom sessions to group peer sessions, allow each student to participate in an interactive, supportive, and engaging experience and ensure the highest quality online learning environment.
