Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

The programme’s assessment strategy features a wide range of methods to ensure that you are able to demonstrate your skills and knowledge. Assessment tasks are designed to enable you to develop skills and encourages robust feedback processes from peers and academics alike.

There is a strong reliance on methods that relate to reflexivity, evidence-based practice and consideration of ‘real-world’ practice.
