This is a modular postgraduate course consisting of 180 credits at level M.
The course is offered on a part-time basis with completion typically within three years.
During the course you will be assessed through coursework including written assignments such as research projects and essays and seminar presentations. You will also produce a dissertation of approximately 20,000 words.
You will have the option to engage in a work-based learning module.
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
