How you learn
You will study in small groups, both for your academic classes and clinical teaching, which will enhance your learning experience. The size of your group will vary from two to fourteen students, depending on what and where you are learning. To get the most from your studies, we encourage you to work closely with your peers, as a team.
Our approach to teaching
Your academic studies are taught through tutorials, seminars, lectures and lab work at the two university campuses. Meanwhile, your personal and clinical skills development takes place in our advanced clinical skills suite, which includes a patient simulator, as well as through clinical placements in GP surgeries and hospitals in the local community.
Our innovative approach to integrated learning and practical skills training, underpinned by our strong, traditional approach to academic teaching, makes a powerful learning model.
How technology fits in
We are alert to the range of digital technologies that have the potential to enhance your learning experience and to embrace them where they prove to be effective. These include: mobile apps that make lectures more interactive; delivering recordings of lectures; supplementary multimedia e-learning resources; and bespoke clinical skills videos. We seek not to replace face-to-face or clinic-based learning but ensure our teaching methods make full use of technologies that can help our students and enhance the learning experience.
