Learning and assessment

This programme uses an evidence-based approach to learning and assessment, which includes face-to-face and online learning.

We use a face-to-face learning and teaching approach known as Team-Based Learning (TBL), which enables continuous formative and summative assessment and feedback to ensure you can keep track of your own progress and identify areas for improvement.

TBL has also been shown to be an inclusive approach that enables all students to perform at their best and reduces attainment gaps.

The programme aims to use your own experiences, allow choice in learning and assessment, provide continuous formative feedback and encourage you to move to increasingly advanced stages of personal development.

You will be allocated a personal academic tutor (PAT) who will provide pastoral support to help you succeed on the programme. PATs will provide tailored support and guide you to support services in the University, such as the Academic Skills and English Language teams.

At the beginning of the unit, you will be provided with pre-work, to enable you to gain the underpinning knowledge for the unit.

You will then undertake an ‘individual readiness assurance test’ (iRAT) followed immediately by a ‘team readiness assurance test’ (tRAT). This will provide instant feedback on your knowledge and understanding of the pre-work and your readiness for the next stage of the unit.

The rest of the unit will consist of workshops, simulations and ‘application exercises’ where you will learn to apply your knowledge in patient care and/or service delivery in a real-world setting.

You will undertake assignments based on authentic practice-based scenarios, including written assignments, objective structured clinical exams (OSCEs) and presentations.

Assessment activities on the programme have been designed to offer choice and flexibility wherever possible and to maximise your prior knowledge and experience in your country of practice. You will also identify your own development needs (with the support of your personal academic tutor (PAT)) and complete an evidence-based portfolio over the course of the programme.

In Semester 3, you will undertake a project. For students undertaking the placement, this will usually be an area of focus for your project. Students on the non-placement route will undertake a different practice-related project.
