We are proud to provide an outstanding educational experience, using the most effective learning and teaching approaches, carefully tailored to suit the specific needs of your course. Apart from a small number of online-only courses, most of our courses consist of in-person, on-campus teaching, enabling full engagement with your lecturers and fellow students.
Practical skills sessions, lab work seminars, and workshops predominantly take place in person, allowing for group working and demonstrations. We also operate virtual labs and Simulated Learning Environments which will facilitate greater access to training opportunities in the future. However, our approach also includes the use of some online learning to support and enhance traditional face-to-face teaching.
Online learning may take place ‘live’ using software such as Zoom, allowing you to interact with the lecturer and other students and to ask questions. Lecture recordings also allow for more flexibility to revisit material, to revise for assessments and to enhance learning outside of the classroom. Some modules have extra resources in Canvas, such as videos, slides and quizzes enabling further flexible study.
How much study time is involved?
As a guide a 10 credit module requires a notional 100 hours of study comprised of 21 hours attendance at study days in the College, 21 hours of learning in practice and the remainder as self directed study, over a period of 15 weeks.
A range of assessment methods are used to assess your learning including reflective essays, narrative essays, case studies, case based discussion, OSCE, presentations, clinical portfolio, multiple choice questions and unseen examination.
Core modules for this General Practice Nursing course are taught on the Singleton campus. Optional modules may be taught on the Singleton Campus or our St David’s Park Campus in Carmarthen.
*Some modules, courses and programmes offered by the School of Health and Social Care will only run if selected by sufficient numbers of students.
This course offers some modules taught through the medium of
