There is a balanced mixture of lectures, seminars and group work. Most modules are taught using a variety of methods in blocks of two teaching days a week for a total of six days per module. When not attending lectures, seminars or other timetabled sessions you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, undertaking research in the library, and preparing coursework assignments and presentations.
Assessment includes written assignments (case studies, reports and essays) and presentations.
You will be allocated an academic supervisor for your dissertation exploring a current topic in quality and safety, which will be assessed by a 12,000 word written submission and a presentation.
