Teaching and learning
This programme's teaching, learning and assessment strategy reflects its student centred, patient-centred and practice-focused approach. Each module strikes a good balance between structured learning activities and private study. You will have opportunities for sharing existing and developing skills while increasing your knowledge and experience. A variety of teaching and learning strategies will be employed to make the most of the range of experience, skills and knowledge within the group.
Approach to assessment
You will be assessed in each of the modules. Assessment strategies are chosen because of their appropriateness for an individual module and programme learning outcomes and content, the academic standard expected and the different styles of learning present within the group. Assessments provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge as well as the critical and reflective analysis required for professional practice.
The assessments also enable you to experience a range of valuable postgraduate attributes relevant to your future career.
You are expected to attend the University one day per week.
