During the degree you will develop your skills and learning through a variety of methods including lectures, workshops, tutorials, presentations and guest lectures delivered by inspiring professionals, practitioners and academics.
To ensure you are getting the very best out of your learning experience, we will assess you using a range of techniques including essays, presentations (poster and oral), cognitive maps, written reports, exams and personalised learning records.
You will also complete a literature review, ethics proposal and research project in your final year.
Your Academic Mentor will always be on-hand to provide you with one-to-one personal, academic and professional support throughout your time on the degree.
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.
Your face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
- Study groups
- Module tutorials
- Academic mentoring
- Academic success programme
- Employability workshops
- Student welfare support
Your online learning and teaching may include:
- Hot topic debates and discussions
- Revision sessions
- Q&A time
- On-demand e-lectures
- Self-paced module content
- Learning packs
- Continuous assessment
This course offers some modules taught through the medium of

fluent Welsh speakers. For more details on the provision available
