Teaching and learning
Teaching, learning and assessment strategy reflects the programme's student-centred, patient-centred and practice-focused approach. Each module has a mix of structured learning activities and private study. You will have opportunities to share your existing and developing skills, 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. There is a mixture of assessment strategies chosen for their appropriateness to an individual module, programme learning outcomes and content, the academic standard expected and the different styles of learning within the group. Assessments are used to give you an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge as well as the critical and reflective analysis required for professional practice.
Assessments will also provide you with an opportunity to experience a range of postgraduate attributes that will prove valuable in your future career.
You will be expected to attend the University one day per week.
