We operate a modular system for this course which means the qualification(s) are obtained by a process of credit accumulation - a model used on courses throughout the UK and Europe.

A Healthcare student on a placement.

Modules are self-contained units of teaching, learning and assessment which usually run for 5-10 weeks. Modules are worth a fixed amount of credit, so if you pass the module you gain the appropriate number of credits which then count towards your award.

Students may also be able to claim exemption for up to 60 credits towards the 120 level 5 credits required for the award, through the recognition of prior learning (RPL) mechanism.

In order to obtain the diploma, you will be expected to accumulate 120 level 5 credits from 15 and/or 30 credit modules, over a 2-4 year period. At least 30 credits should be accumulated each year, in order to maintain your registration. You may also be able to claim exemption for up to 60 credits towards the 120 level 5 credits required for the award, through the recgonition of prior learning (RPL) mechanism.
