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 which is a guide to how long your course will take to complete. The actual duration may be longer or shorter depending on your speed of study, study options chosen and module availability. It’s possible to complete your studies faster than the indicative course duration by doubling up on modules at certain times; however, minimum study durations do apply.

All of our courses have regular start dates throughout the year. Our academic year is organised into modules, typically with a one- or two-week break between modules and a structured three-week break for the Christmas period. Students will receive a course timetable during the application process.

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. All courses are delivered in English only.

You are supported throughout your course by a dedicated Student Adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor. To ensure you receive the support you need from your tutor, we cap our class sizes at 20 students.

Assessment

We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. Assessment for the PG Dip 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 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 Dip 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. 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.

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.

This is part of a set of study options within the postgraduate Engineering Capability Development Framework (ECDF). The concept behind the Framework is to offer you flexibility in the modules you study, and the opportunity to move freely between award routes based on your career goals.

The MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert Engineering Management course is aimed at engineers who want to move into management while maintaining their competences in technical subjects. It can also help you develop a portfolio of evidence to support Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration, even if you don't have the academic qualifications normally required to study engineering management at Master's level.

Course detail

You'll normally have substantial experience in engineering, perhaps as an engineering undergraduate or as an apprentice with a Higher National Certificate (HNC), who has progressed to working at graduate level or equivalent.

The course has an 'advised route', but there is a wide range of optional modules available, and built-in flexibility to choose the topics most relevant to your career aspirations. Just talk to the Programme Leader about the modules that best match your goals. There is also flexibility in the learning format, with taught three to five-day blocks of lectures and workshops on campus, distance- learning, or work-based project options.

Structure

The full Master's course comprises 180 credits divided into three 60 credits stages: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and Masters. Students work incrementally through the three stages and must pass all modules at each stage in order to progress to the next.

Modules

• Professional Development Appraisal and Continuous Review
• Advanced Manufacturing
• Engineering Project Management
• Technical Business Operations
• Leading Change
• Discrete Event Simulation
• Research Investigation and Methods for change
• Lean Engineering
• Engineering Project Management
• Dissertation

Format

The learning methods and the structure of the course mean you'll take an integrated view of an engineering enterprise by placing technology in strategic, financial, human and operational contexts. We encourage you to read about the subjects independently, to consolidate your knowledge and understanding and broaden your understanding of the key concepts.

Taught modules are usually held over three to five consecutive days, but can include distance learning and work-based learning in some cases. You'll organise your work-based learning with your module leader, this ensures it's tailored to your needs and the learning outcomes are achievable.

Assessment

Assessment is normally by assignment. At this level, we do not need to test your understanding, but rather your ability to implement your newfound skills and knowledge. Assignments will normally be around a real industrial case study, or a live project in your workplace.
