We are proud to provide an outstanding educational experience, using the most effective learning and teaching approaches, carefully tailored to suit the specific needs of your course. Apart from a small number of online-only courses, most of our courses consist of in-person, on-campus teaching, enabling full engagement with your lecturers and fellow students.
Practical skills sessions, lab work seminars, and workshops predominantly take place in person, allowing for group working and demonstrations. We also operate virtual labs and Simulated Learning Environments which will facilitate greater access to training opportunities in the future. However, our approach also includes the use of some online learning to support and enhance traditional face-to-face teaching.
Online learning may take place ‘live’ using software such as Zoom, allowing you to interact with the lecturer and other students and to ask questions. Lecture recordings also allow for more flexibility to revisit material, to revise for assessments and to enhance learning outside of the classroom. Some modules have extra resources in Canvas, such as videos, slides and quizzes enabling further flexible study.
The degree will be delivered using work-based learning with the opportunity of attending taught modules of up to 40 credits if the student chooses. The first (core) module ‘Starting your Professional Development’ will comprise four taught days in the College. Subsequent modules will either be existing taught level 3 modules from the undergraduate module catalogue or work-based modules.
For the work-based modules you will, with the support of a practice facilitator and the programme manager/tutor, develop learning contracts which will be aimed at meeting the learning requirements for the module and practice development needs in your practice area.
To be awarded the BSc (Hons) Enhanced Professional Practice, you must achieve 120 credit points at level 3 which must include the two core modules.
This course may offer some modules taught through the medium of Welsh or
bilingually for students who consider themselves to be fluent Welsh speakers.
