ASSESSMENT

Our assessment practice uses grades. A key benefit of grade-based assessment (GBA) is that grades and associated descriptors help you to track your development on each module as well as monitor overall progress on the journey to your award.

Students are expected to attend each taught online weekly session and each day of the Study Weeks/Clinical Training Prorgams (when part of the course).

 

Study Week and Clinical Training Progam attendance is compulsory when these elements form part of the course.  The PGDip/PGCert will not be awarded if full attendance has not been achieved.
