Years one and two of the course are taught in a similar fashion. Each week, new topics are introduced using a variety of methods including lectures, tutorials and practicals, supported by online resources.
A lecture lasts about 50 minutes, depending onthe module and, where appropriate, makes use of:
With a small student intake we can foster an informal, friendly and open environment that is beneficial to students.
On arrival, you will be allocated a personal tutor who will work with you for the whole of your degree programme. They will arrange regular meetings where you will have the opportunity to discuss your academic progress, including assessment feedback, or seek confidential support and advice on any other matters of concern.
Where appropriate, your tutor will also be able to help you find support from outside agencies. In addition to your personal tutor, you will be encouraged to seek tutorial help from lecturers as and when the need arises.
Students can also access a wealth of support on a wide range of issues through student services.
The Students' Union is also a great place to find help.
These study sessions are used to reinforce what has already been introduced earlier in that week. Here you will look at the material in greater depth, explore related issues, enhance understanding and apply practice to the theory.
Although the teaching year is divided into two semesters for organisational purposes, this is fitted into the traditional pattern of three terms:
In year one you will be expected to attend approximately 24 hours of lectures and practical sessions per week. In years two and three this will be less, but you will be encouraged to undertake more self-directed study. Placements will be full-time (36 hours per week) or equivalent part-time hours (for Sport Rehabilitation only).
