Teaching and assessment
Support from your tutor
You will have a tutor to help you with the study material and mark and comment on your work. You will be able to ask your tutor for advice and guidance and if you are new to The Open University, your tutor will be particularly concerned to help you with study methods. An important element of the module is the feedback you receive from your tutor on the writing that you do as part of the module. Feedback provides the basis for your writing development as you work your way through the material, and you will be able to contact your tutor by email or phone throughout.
Contact our Student Registration & Enquiry Service if you want to know more about study with The Open University before you register.
