Mode of study

All of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio/video clips of 5-25 minutes long (all with transcripts/subtitles), diagrams, interactive media and multiple choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printed materials are provided for some module content.

Tuition strategy

This module provides online tutorials. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Working with others

Part of your preparation for TMA 03 will involve an assessed collaborative forum activity on a policy report. Other than this there is no formal requirement to work with others. However, you are likely to find that interacting with other students, including through attending tutorials, will help your learning.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain several diagrams, graphs and photographs. Interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module. Figure descriptions are provided for most figures.

Finding information

You may be required to search for, and make use of in your assessments, third party material online.


This module has five Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs) which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system. There is also an End-of-Module Assessment that must be submitted online.


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.


All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills.
