Module overview

This module provides the students with the opportunity to gain experience in different health, social or community care settings which can be abroad or in the UK.

The module will normally take the format of an 8 week placement in one or more care settings. The timing will vary for different student groups and the teaching staff will vary for different practices and student groups. As is the nature of placements, the exact learning experiences of each student will be variable however all students should receive the same broad opportunities sufficient to achieve the learning outcomes of the module and it is expected that students will take responsibility for making the most of the opportunities provided. Students should be pro-active in securing experiences in areas in which they feel they are weak and/or in which they would like to gain more experience. Alternatively students may wish to explore a specialist interest or experience a non-NHS healthcare setting.
