Mode of study

Some of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images; audio/video clips (generally 5–10 minutes), all with transcripts/subtitles; diagrams; interactive media; animations; and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printed materials are only provided for the two module books.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events, including live online tutorials with groups of students. Although not compulsory, these sessions will help you consolidate your learning.

Each student will be in a ‘tutor group’ led by your personal tutor, who will be available to answer any questions you might have about the module. Your tutor will also mark your essays, and provide feedback on each, for you to take into account when writing the next. There will be online learning events to accompany each block.

Working with others

You’ll be required to work with other students. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ work; reflecting on others’ comments on your work; and/or working together with fellow learners on a task.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain some diagrams. Interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module. We provide descriptions for all essential figures.


This module has tutor-marked assignments (TMAs) and an end-of-module assessment (TMA). 


You’ll 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 the feedback to help you prepare for your next assignment.


We structure all University modules to a set timetable and you’ll need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. We’ll support you in developing these skills.
