Have a look at our learning methods
Each year is made up of two semesters consisting of 12 teaching weeks and one week consolidation/revision and two weeks to complete assessments. You will study three modules per semester, six modules a year.
- Year 1: 31 study weeks including a one-week induction
- Year 2: 30 study weeks
- Year 3: 30 study weeks
Assessments are spread out throughout the duration of the course, rather than having lots of exams at the end of the year. This means at the end of each semester, you have a revision/consolidation week followed by two weeks for assessment in each module.
Method of assessment
Throughout the course you are assessed by a variety of different assessment methods to enable you to demonstrate the development of your knowledge and skills throughout the programme. The methods of assessment include:
Examinations – two hours, ten multiple choice questions and a choice of two from six long form questions.
Coursework – essay, project report or portfolio.
The range of assessment methods reflects the practical nature of the programme and aligns the assessment with the learning outcomes of the programme. A mock assessment is included.
