Tuition strategy

This module provides online tutorials. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Practical work

Online practical work – machine learning activities are a required component of assessment.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain a number of diagrams, graphs and photographs. Reading these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided for all figures.

Finding information

You may be required to search for, and make use of, third-party material online and this is assessed.

Specialist reading material

In this module, you will be working with specialist reading material such as computer code and some mathematical notation. There is also some graphical notation and some visualisations. These are delivered online.


This module has tutor-marked assignments (TMAs) and an end-of-module assessment (EMA) that you must submit via the online TMA/EMA service.


You’ll receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment.


All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you’ll need time management skills to keep your studies on track. You’ll be supported in developing these skills.

Specialist software

The module materials and assessment ask you to use the specialist software Jupyter Notebooks which may not be fully accessible. Students with visual impairment or limited manual dexterity may require sighted or manual assistance.
