We believe teaching should be inspiring, engaging and challenging. That's why we employ a variety of learning methods and exploit the latest technologies to create a vibrant study environment that will enhance your university experience.
Our teaching is among the best in the UK and you'll learn from a wide variety of experienced lecturers and practitioners. At times you will work alongside other healthcare students, such as those on medical, physiotherapy or pharmacy courses, and will will take part in:
Support is a vital part of the learning process and we have spent a lot of time learning from previous student experiences to create an integrated structure that supports you as you become a more confident, independent learner and practitioner.
All students have a personal tutor who works with them for the whole course. Regular one-to-one meetings with tutors are common, giving you the opportunity to discuss academic progress and assessment feedback, or seek confidential help and advice.
Students can also access a wealth of University support on a wide range of issues through student services.
The Students' Union is also a great place to find help.
In addition to interactions with your lecturers and peers, you will be expected to take part in directed and self-directed independent learning.
We invest greatly in new technologies and innovative online teaching methods so that this independent learning is enhanced and supported. These include:
bite-sized chunks of e-learning on specific healthcare topics
a virtual portfolio tool that allows you to access an online central resource for course material
There is a dedicated team within the school who help to create bite-sized reusable learning objects which are award winning, peer-reviewed and used by healthcare professionals globally. They are completely free to use.
