Module overview

This is an open, flexible independent learning module. You will be allocated an academic coach who will be available for up to 6 contact hours. These contact hours may be face to face (in person or via Skype), by telephone and by email depending upon need, preference and availability. You will work with their academic coach to:

  • Identify and negotiate a Healthcare/Sciences subject / project.
  • Apply and develop the module learning outcomes to their subject of study.
  • Select an appropriate method of assessment from a list of those deemed suitable to the nature of the topic or project.
  • Agree a learning contract which details the points above and a proposed schedule for attainment including mode(s) of contact between student and coach.

NB Where students undertaking the MSc in Professional Practice in Health Sciences select to undertake more than one open module they must demonstrate to the Programme Lead that the topic of each subsequent open module is relevant to the overall aim or trajectory of the programme of study.
