Learning and assessment

Whilst following this programme of study you will engage with learning through a range of teaching methods. These methods will be 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.

The aims of the teaching and learning strategies have been designed so that you will be given the opportunity to develop theoretical and experiential understanding, advance your knowledge and critical thinking with the assistance of research informed teaching, and to develop a range of skills appropriate to your professional field. This may include work based learning with competencies undertaken in your organisation or with an additional clinical area.

The Midwifery modules and awards nested within the framework 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.

SSPRD Framework for Flexible Learning

At the Faculty of Health Studies, University of Bradford, you can choose to study for individual modules, a named award or build module credits through the SSPRD Framework for Flexible Learning to achieve an award relevant to your professional needs.

The Framework for Flexible Learning in Health and Social Care is a Faculty-wide academic structure for Specialist Skills and Post-Registration Development.

It offers students increased flexibility and choice in the modules and courses that can be undertaken and it is also responsive to employer needs.

The flexibility also allows you to move from one award to another if your career changes or you take time out from regular studying.

Shared teaching and research expertise from across the Faculty is offered through interdisciplinary teaching across our core research modules.

The Faculty of Health Studies is regionally, nationally and internationally recognised for its teaching and research, and works with a number of healthcare partners to ensure clinical excellence.

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.
