Mode of study

The core module materials are provided in hard copy and online, but other study material is provided in an online format only. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio/video clips of 2 - 22 minutes in length, self-assessment quizzes and assessment materials. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Transcripts and subtitles are available for audio-visual materials.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events including face-to-face tutorials. Each face-to-face tutorial offers an online alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning. 

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain some images. Figure descriptions are provided for figures. These do not form a key part of the assessment.

Finding information

You may be encouraged to search for, and make use of, third party material online. 

Assessment

This module has six Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system and an exam that must be taken at an exam centre. Special exam arrangements can be made where appropriate. 

Feedback

You will receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment. 

Schedule

All University modules are structured according to a set timetable. You will have access to a detailed online study calendar, but you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills.
