All teaching on our distance learning postgraduate courses in medical education is delivered through an online virtual learning environment and incorporates a range of interactive teaching.

These resources enable regular peer and tutor interaction and the majority of the material can be studied in your own time, when it suits you.

The teaching materials encompass:

  • podcasts
  • blogs
  • discussion boards
  • webinars
  • videos

Your learning will be focused around tutor-delivered material, peer discussion, directed self-study and assignments.


Each module is assessed via written assignments and there are no exams.

Your assignments will be contextualised to your own setting allowing you to demonstrate the application of theory, concepts and principles to your own work-based practice.

We encourage you to self-evaluate and critically reflect on your learning with your tutor providing feedback on your self-evaluation as well as your final assignment.

Students can undertake work in their own time in accordance with their schedule, working to the fixed final assessment deadline(s) for each module intake.
