You will typically spend 35 hours a week on the course when on clinical placement (including a half-day of study) and approximately 20 hours when in academic study. You will be expected to complete assignments/ projects and some practical work in your own time and prepare for clinical assessments. Practical work is extremely important and experiments using equipment and phantoms (dummies and test tools) are a major feature. Assessment includes written assignments, poster presentations, practical experiments, clinical assessments, oral presentations, problem-based learning and the research project.What will you study on this course?
