Each 30-credit module comprises weekly topics, corresponding to the key content items detailed in the module descriptors.
Your study equates to approximately 10 - 12 hours of directed learning per week.
During your study period you will undertake formative assessments, which help you to measure your progress but do not count towards your grade.
You will also take summative assessments, which do count towards the final grade. Summative assessments comprise multiple choice question tests evenly spaced out throughout the study session and an online assessment at the end of the session.
All assessments are 100% online.
