Teaching methodology in foreign universities
Updated on Dec 30, 2013 - 3:27 p.m. IST by Team Careers360

The teaching methodology in the universities abroad is quite different from that of universities in India. Unlike the Indian system, foreign universities give much emphasis to research, readings and practical experience. The number of lectures is less compared to that of Indian universities. That doesn't mean that students get plenty of free time. They have to spend equal amount of time in library and labs (for the science students) to acquire more knowledge. Teaching methodology in top universities equips students with enough capabilities to get preference in the job market.

“We work alongside industrial experts and many of our lecturers continue to practice in their areas of expertise. Many of our teaching staff hold teaching qualifications as well as academic qualifications. We continually review and evaluate our teaching and course provision to ensure that it is up-to-date and we are continuing to help students find their dream jobs.”

“Under UCD’s educational research programme, academics with excellent teaching skills and expertise are appointed at university level to develop new ways to make First Year University Learning more relevant, useful and interesting for the student. Our Drop-in Writing Centre to assist students in developing and extending their academic writing skills is an outcome of that.”

“There is hardly any teaching at the graduate level. We were given research papers and were supposed to be prepared for the classes. The classes were more of debates and discussions where students shared their perspectives on issues.”
