Learning and assessment

Introduction:

Studying online gives you the freedom to study when and where it suits you – at home, during your lunch hour or anywhere else you have internet access.

All of our online courses have an indicative study duration but it’s possible to complete your studies faster than the standard course duration by doubling up on modules at certain times; however, minimum study durations do apply.

Teaching methods and style:

As we are a 100% online university, we utilise a Virtual Learning Environment instead of a traditional campus. The system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials.

This learning platform allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and you can listen to, and view, live lectures and seminars over the internet.

You are supported throughout your course by a dedicated Student Adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor.

Assessment:

We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. Assessment for the PG Cert International Trade and Commercial Law will be based on a combination of written coursework.

You will always be aware of your current provisional grade right from the start of the programme, allowing you to evaluate the success of your current study methods and clearly identify areas to improve. We believe that this transparency gives you the information you need to make the most of your postgraduate course. We achieve this by:

· showing your marks clearly in your gradebook, which can be viewed whenever you log onto the learning platform;

· the rapid turnaround of work assessed to ensure that your gradebook is always up to date;

· assessing your work throughout the module rather than waiting for end of year exams;

· ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Adviser; and

· the simplicity and transparency in the design of our assessment criteria.

We also have a policy of ensuring that work submitted by students is authentic. As well as the fact that all work is frequently assessed, we use a well established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

Career prospects

We are dedicated to improving employability amongst our graduates. Our online courses give you the opportunity to improve your career prospects and earning potential with a mix of key skills that are directly transferable to the workplace.

The legal knowledge gained from the PG Cert International Trade and Commercial Law could prepare you for a role in an international law firm, multinational company or governmental organisation.

Qualified solicitors or barristers will also be able to use the skills and knowledge gained from studying the course to meet their annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.

Designed for both medical and managerial staff, our Patient Safety programmes - Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert), Diploma (PG Dip) and Master’s (MSc) degrees - help students become leaders in patient safety and quality. Read more
Designed for both medical and managerial staff, our Patient Safety programmes - Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert), Diploma (PG Dip) and Master’s (MSc) degrees - help students become leaders in patient safety and quality. Through exposure to internationally-renowned teaching staff and blended-learning workshops, practicums and experiential learning, students are equipped with the tools to tackle challenges arising from healthcare’s ever-changing landscape.

A particular emphasis is placed on translation and leadership – marrying theoretical understanding with practical knowledge of how to make sustainable change. Students are encouraged and guided by expert instructors and best-practice case studies to think outside-the-box on the architecture, implementation and evaluation of patient safety and quality solutions. For example, Modules 3 and 4 (the Social Impact of Patient Safety and Human Factors and Organisations) challenge students to think about the potential impact of new interventions to patients, carers, members of the family and healthcare staff, and support students to tackle said challenges through practical sessions led by expert interaction designers.

Programme structure

The programme features three distinct awards: the Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert), Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) and the Master’s Degree (MSc Patient Safety). Students can choose the level of commitment depending on their educational needs and can continue further should they change their minds.
Find out more about the programme structure on our programme structure page: http://www.imperial.ac.uk/medicine/study/postgraduate/masters-programmes/msc-pg-dip-and-pg-cert-patient-safety/programme-structure/

Is this programme for you?

The programme is designed to provide a solid foundation for those who work in patient safety and quality. Students can expect to gain theoretical understanding, practical know-how and training in academically rigorous approaches to solving patient safety and quality challenges.

Key benefits

At the end of the programme, PG Cert students will have gained the skills and understanding to:

‌•demonstrate an awareness of current policy and context of patient safety and quality improvement
‌•understand how governance and political accountability affect the effectiveness of setting and implementing policy
‌•develop a detailed understanding of the social impact of patient safety and related academic theories.
‌•develop a detailed understanding of human factors theories, models and methods applicable to complex systems such as healthcare

At the end of the programme, PG Dip students will have gained the skills and understanding to:

‌•demonstrate an awareness of current policy and context of patient safety and quality improvement
‌•understand how governance and political accountability affect the effectiveness of setting and implementing policy
‌•develop a detailed understanding of the social impact of patient safety and related academic theories.
‌•develop a detailed understanding of human factors theories, models and methods applicable to complex systems such as healthcare

At the end of the programme, MSc students will have gained the skills and understanding to:

‌•perform literature searches and critically appraise literature
‌•understand the steps involved in developing a research project
‌•develop a research project and carry out that project in a timely manner

All students can expect to:

‌•collaborate, discuss and resolve pertinent patient safety and quality challenges with other students, with mentoring and guidance from teaching staff
‌•build meaningful relationships with the next cohort of patient safety leaders, and current though-leaders in the field

Career prospects

We expect graduates of the programme to be well-placed to advance in a range of directions. Safety and quality are becoming increasingly important topics in the national dialogue of health systems, including the UK’s NHS. This is further compounded by tightening national budgets. As such, individuals who can demonstrate an understanding of the factors that contribute to patient safety lapses and the know-how of how to address them are increasingly valued by employers. In the past, students have used their Imperial designation as a differentiator from other colleagues with similar professional backgrounds to progress further and faster in the same career track.

Further, given the portfolio of high-caliber teaching staff, students are able to gain exposure to leaders in industry, academia and policy stakeholders.

Enhancing Learning and Teaching Through Reflective Practice
Developing Assessment for Learning

Please note that you will need to complete all of the above core modules. This course does not have any optional modules. Modules are subject to change.

Assessment for the Enhancing Learning and Teaching through Reflective Practice module is through the completion of a patchwork text (a series of separate pieces of work that are ‘sewn’ together at the end to link to the structure of the module) and reflective commentary; it includes the observation of your teaching.

The Developing Assessment for Learning module is based on a negotiated format which you can discuss with your tutor and also includes a reflective commentary. You could choose to carry out a patchwork text, group project or an essay, depending on your individual strengths and the methods you work best with.

We use online submission and feedback for our final assessments. With students across the sector increasingly expected to use online plagiarism detection software packages, this offers you an insight into both ‘sides’ of the tool, as well as the opportunity to try out the system from a ‘student’ perspective.
