Students will be allocated a personal academic tutor, who is usually the course lead.
The University places emphasis on enabling students to develop the independent learning capabilities that will equip you for lifelong learning and future employment, as well as academic achievement. A mixture of independent study, teaching and academic support from Student Services and Library Services, and also the personal academic tutoring system enables you to reflect on progress and build up a profile of skills, achievements and experiences that will help you to flourish and be successful.
All students will complete up to 450 hours in a range of practice settings for their intended area of practice. The exact hours are agreed at the commencement of the course. Placements are arranged by the work based learning and support office. While on placement you will be supervised and assessed by practice supervisors, a practice assessor and an academic assessor.
