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.

At the heart of the course is the requirement to maintain a professional practice portfolio, detailing clinical practice and personal development. Each module will involve formative and/or summative assessments, which help to contribute to this portfolio or draw on its content.

Assesment methods for this course include: written exams, oral and written case reports and written reports of activities such as practice evaluation exercises. Some modules also have competency requirements (pass/fail assessments). These components are based around demonstrating competence through Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) and the professional practice portfolio.

Students can also exit with PGDip or PGCert Awards.
