I completed a Physical Geography degree, which had more contact hours each week than human geaography modules due to lab work etc. You are taught through lectures, seminars, tutorials, lab sessions (both in scientific and computer labs). Assessment consists of coursework (essays, field and lab reports, practical reports, posters) and exams depending on the module being studied. Most modeules are around 50/50 coursework exam spilt. Field courses tend to be 100% coursework. From my own personal experience, feedback was reasonably prompt and detailed so that you could implement improvements/ work on areas of weakness highlighted for following coursework. Facilities were very good and high quality as department recently been updated lthough some of the general computer suites used could do with a few improvements, which ISS (information services) are currently undertaking.
