How you’ll study
This course is a partnership between the student, their peers and the teaching team. It is a mix of timetabled activity and the student’s own personal study. ‘Scheduled Contact/Activity Time’ (i.e. ‘Contact Hours’) involves interaction and supervision from teaching and associated staff, including activities they set up for students. Contact Hours help shape and guide students’ studies. This is where students may be introduced to new ideas and knowledge, shown practical skills they may practise independently, offered guidance on project work, or provided with personalised feedback. Contact may be face-to-face or mediated through other channels such as the Intranet.

- Group work to enable students to further develop their teamwork skills to work effectively in a professional environment;
