English language requirements

Overseas students whose first language is not English must satisfy the University that they meet the International English Language Testing Service (IELTS). An overall band score of at least 6.5 in IELTS with no banding below 6.0 is required.

If you do not meet the IELTS requirement, you can take a University of Bradford pre-sessional English course. See the Language Centre for more details »

Learning and assessment

Introductory lectures, small group discussions, tutorials and practical workshops will be used to enhance theoretical work and develop advanced clinical skills.

Following the taught element, you will undertake clinical visits and a period of clinical practice which will include sessions with a named mentor, in order to facilitate the development of advanced practical and clinical reasoning skills. This will help prepare you for the summative clinical examinations.

Throughout the module you will keep a reflective practice diary and be encouraged to do so using electronic methods such as 'Pebble Pad'. The directed study will include preparation for the clinical examinations, observations of two labours and writing up of critical reflections of the observed labours and on how observational visits undertaken have informed clinical practice
