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.
All assessment will be in the form of coursework and presentations, with the focus being on work based issues.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) 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. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Graduates with a good first degree. Work experience will be taken into account on a case-by-case basis.
English Language Requirements:
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.
No work experience is required.
