You do need to have a good standard of spoken and written English to study successfully with us. Poor language skills will make study more difficult and are likely to impact on your ability to demonstrate your learning to successfully complete the module. If you have any doubts about whether your level of English is good enough for you to study this module you may find it helpful to look at our Skills for OU Study site
You are strongly advised to study no more than this one 60-credit module in the same year.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the course, please speak to an adviser.
No assumptions are made regarding your understanding of healthcare improvement, leadership or other areas covered by this module. It will be useful though, to begin a learning journal in which you note areas of your own experience you feel are relevant to healthcare improvement, and any useful material you find in the media or other sources. Sensitising yourself in this way will help you to explore concepts more fully in the course.
