Assessment Methods:
The assessment strategy for this course is closely aligned to the teaching and learning strategy which is designed to have: immediate professional relevance; foster active learning, be leaner-centred in approach and draw on expertise-by-experience. The choice of assessments is determined by their fitness for purpose i.e. to evidence achievement of unit learning outcomes at Masters level (Level 7). To enhance your understanding and experiences of assessment practices you will encounter a wide range of formative and summative assessment methods including those that enable you to undertake practice-focussed tasks that have the potential to influence care delivery. Many of the assessment tasks are designed so that you can tailor them to your professional interests, experience and development needs. They are also designed so that you can rehearse ways of thinking and acting that are professionally relevant. Examples include: written assignments ranging from reflective pieces to case studies and academic essays as well as assessed practice within your placements. Assessments are also designed to support you integrating learning in theory and practice and in demonstrating that integration. The assessments culminate in a choice of dissertation projects: a service improvement project, a literature review or a research proposal.

It's really great being a student here - the uni and students do their best to make you feel very welcome and there's plenty of resources and help available. The 24/7 library is also a massive plus if you burn the midnight oil like me. The teachers give really good lectures, explaining things in depth and always available to help out, The Union is great, with amazing support services.

    So far I have had a much better experience here than I did at my previous university! I have a better social life and feel more a part of a community through my involvement with the Cheer team, Rep scheme and Ambassadorship. The careers team is wonderful- helping me to set up a plan for how to improve my CV and gain relevant work experience, even getting me in touch with an organisation I now volunteer for. The mental health services team is very helpful in informing me of how best to get the right support from the uni itself and my doctor. They keep in touch regularly to make sure that I am feeling and coping okay too. I love my course and the staff could not be more supportive. If there was anything that they could improve on it is the Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) scheme as not a lot of students know who their PAT is nor what they should be used for, However this has already been discussed in a meeting with the union and the reps so changes are about to be put in place hopefully
