Learning and assessment

Whilst following this programme of study you will engage with learning through a range of teaching methods - these methods are dependent on modules studied. However, student-centred approaches to learning are a feature of the modules and you will be expected to take responsibility for your learning as you develop your academic skills. There are a number of approaches to the manner in which modules are delivered and these include study day attendance, distance learning and blended learning.

The aims of the teaching and learning strategies have been designed so that you will be given the opportunity to develop theoretical understanding, advance your knowledge and critical thinking and develop technical skills. The modules offer you the capacity to acknowledge and build upon the knowledge and skills you may have acquired through previous learning experiences including those in the work place.

Your course of study will expose you to a range of different teaching, learning and assessment strategies required to achieve the learning outcomes.

This is the current course information. Modules and course details may change, subject to the University's programme approval, monitoring and review procedures. The University reserves the right to alter or withdraw courses, services and facilities as described on our website without notice and to amend Ordinances, Regulations, fees and charges at any time.
