Elective Modules at level 6 allow you to further develop your particular area of interest. Direct entry to Level 6 is available for those with a relevant Foundation Degree or HND. The programme caters for a range of applicants and welcomes applications from students with skills acquired in practice in a variety of health and social welfare roles or on short courses. The course will lead you to a range of professional roles in community and health promotion settings, particularly social nutrition and healthy living, which is of growing importance in contemporary society.

Assessment methods

The course aims to provide you with the theoretical knowledge and development of independent study skills to succeed at Honours Degree level. You will develop a deeper understanding of the application of theory to practice and will acquire evaluation skills through the progressive building of research skills over all three years of the course, undertaking increasingly independent practitioner research activities in a range of modules. Study skills support is available to you in drop-in workshops and individual appointments. You will interact with the curriculum through involvement in student led seminars, presentations and discussions. The development of independent learning and leadership skills, including self-evaluation and conscious awareness of effective learning techniques is promoted through interactive teaching approaches such as personal tutorials, e-mail and Moodle. You will be supported to carry out an independent research project at Level 6. Teaching and learning are conducted through a variety of methods, which include lectures, group work, seminars, presentations and independent focused research for the Dissertation module. Blended learning through Moodle (the college virtual learning environment) is used in all modules. You will be assessed by undertaking a range of formative and summative assignments including: Personal Development Planning portfolios; Work Based learning activities and written reflections upon these; a range of practical tasks and evaluation of these; individual and group presentations; essays and reports. Some modules (a small number) are assessed by examination .
