The modules are taught through a combination of lectures, e-learning and seminars. All students are expected to prepare for these sessions by completing set tasks of recommended reading and/or research.
When not attending lectures, seminars and other timetabled sessions students are expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve reading, working on individual and group projects, undertaking research in the library, preparing coursework assignments and presentations. Independent learning is supported by a range of excellent facilities, including access to the University of Roehampton library.
The course provides opportunities to test understanding of the subject informally before completing the formal assessments that count towards the final mark. The Formal Assessment methods include an essay, a professional review, a staff development tool with rationale and a Dissertation report. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark;
The assessments are spread across the year to make the workload manageable.
