It is through the 'Action Learning Sets' that the topics for the main pieces of assessment will be negotiated with the tutor. This will allow for an individual learning contract to be created for each participant. Online tutor support will be available throughout the programme.

How will I be taught?
All assessment will be in the form of coursework and presentations, with the focus being on work based issues.

Residency criteria
The weekend residentials will be supported by resource packs provided through our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). A key feature of the work-based approach to the assessments is the 'Action Learning Sets' which will take place both during and between each workshop.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

Funding

You could benefit from financial support through a variety of bursaries and scholarship schemes during your time as a student.
Bursaries and scholarships are non-repayable (unlike loans) and can therefore be a great way to help minimise your costs at university, should you are awarded with them.
