The course assessment is designed to promote employability and uses different strategies to address the diversity of employability requirements for public health and health promotion practice.
The eight modules in part one are assessed separately over one or two years with a pass mark of 50%.
You must pass all assessments to precede to part two the dissertation stage (60 credits). On successful completion of the dissertation you will receive an MSc at pass, merit or distinction according to the marks you have achieved.
Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.
You’re face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
Clinical skills and practical sessions
Action learning sets
Clinical competency outcomes
Student welfare support
Your online learning and teaching may include:
Peer Group Work
Academic consultation office hours
Virtual OSCE practice/assessment
Hot topic debates and discussions
Self-paced module content
