Learning and teaching

As a Birmingham student, you will be joining the academic elite and will have the privilege of learning from world-leading experts, as well as from your peers. From the outset you will be encouraged to become an independent and self-motivated learner. We want you to be challenged and will encourage you to think for yourself.

In the first year, part-time you attend for one afternoon per week for the first ten weeks and then two three-day blocks followed by one afternoon per week in the last ten weeks. In the second year there are four three-day blocks and one afternoon per week in the final ten weeks. Full-time students attend all of the sessions in one year.

Lectures are by subject specialists, NHS clinicians, service users and carers. Many of the lectures are from visiting experts who practice and/or research in their specific field. The course is academic in nature and you are expected to use the basic content as a springboard for further self-study. All programme presentations and materials are available on Canvas (the University’s on-line learning platform) for follow up after lectures.

You will also have access to a compehensive support system that will assist and encourage you, including personal tutors and welfare tutors who can help with both academic and welfare issues.
