Course details

You’ll learn in a variety of different settings and ways and use a wide range of skills and techniques to allow you to do this. In order to begin this process, there is an induction period at the start of the programme that helps you establish supportive networks. Teaching and learning seminars are usually arranged on an average of three full days each week, with the rest of the week allocated for preparatory directed self-learning. Most modules follow a similar format, especially during the first year of the programme. The learning in each module usually involves a combination of preparatory directed self-learning taught sessions and seminars. The student portal provides access to the teaching and learning material and it also has the facility for communication between you and your fellow students as well as your module leader and teachers. This will allow you to work collaboratively and to have your questions addressed. This programme is not part of the Integrated Masters Scheme.
