    Teaching and learning methods vary between modules, but usually involve a workshop-type format which mixes formal lectures, small group discussion and individual reflective learning. Some modules are taught on-line, therefore basic computer skills are required. Student-led seminars and studies are also included in the programme.

    All assessment is by coursework where the majority of assignments are designed to be responsive to the professional needs of the student.
