The course is taught at the St. David’s Park site in Carmarthen. There are two student intakes per year, one in October and another in March.
You will also have access to the extensive facilities at the Singleton Park campus in Swansea.
Part two consists of the dissertation which has to be submitted by 30th September in the third year.
We assess your learning using a variety of methods including essays, presentations and objective structured clinical examinations. The assessment for each module must be successfully completed.
Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.
You’re face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
Clinical skills and practical sessions
Action learning sets
Clinical competency outcomes
Student welfare support
Your online learning and teaching may include:
Peer Group Work
Academic consultation office hours
Virtual OSCE practice/assessment
Hot topic debates and discussions
Self-paced module content
