The MSc in Podiatry by Distance e-Learning offered at Queen Margaret University can be studied at a time most suitable for you, through a distance e-learnng route with tutor support and no requirement to attend QMU, or if preferred, it can be studied through a mix of distance e-learning and block attendance at the University campus.
The programme has a modular structure which means that study is broken down to blocks of either 15 credits (single module) or 30 credits (a double module).
Distance e-learning modules will be taught using QMUs virtual learning environment which requires access to the internet at a time most suitable to you. The virtual learning environment will be used to deliver course content, group tutorial discussion, tutor support and course work assignment submissions.
If you choose to study modules that require attendance, course content will be delivered through lecture presentations, seminars and tutorials. Your performance will be assessed by coursework assignments, however, some modules require an examination. Class sizes are usually less than 15 students.
This course will help you incorporate your new-found skills and can contribute to continuing professional development. This course will also allow you to develop your own area of interest. An example of this has been a student who has developed an expertise in analysing the movement of the foot through the use of finite element modelling.
