Autism (Adults) MEd/BPhil/Postgraduate Diploma/ Postgraduate Certificate/Advanced Certificate

Course Description

The programme aims to provide you with the knowledge of the autism spectrum disorder, including Asperger syndrome, based on theory, research and practice. As a result, you are then able to interpret that knowledge for the support and education of adults with autism throughout the range of ability and in different settings. You will also develop skills in identifying and meeting the needs of adults with autism, and to improve your awareness of different approaches and models of service delivery. It gives a broad coverage, encouraging students to think for themselves and use their professional skills to select and research topics of relevance to their own situation.

The Autism (Adults) programme is offered by distance learning. You will have a personal tutor in a regional or online tutor group, with study supported through study packs, tutorial groups, telephone, email and the online virtual learning environment network, encouraging you to develop through shared experience. Internet access is required for the programme. There are two University-based study weekends in the first year. (Find out more in the Learning and Teaching section).
