Teaching and assessment

for Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Technology (distance learning) MSc


This course is delivered by distance learning, so you can study at your own pace. You'll be given a study guide for each module which will contain all the information you need to progress through the course.

You'll be assigned a tutor for each module who will be on-hand to help with your learning, and will assess your progress throughout the course.


You'll be assessed by a combination of:

  • coursework, including self-assessment questions, and a test at the end of each module
  • written examinations
  • a research project, including a dissertation and viva voce examination

While most of the coursework can be completed remotely, the written and viva voce examinations must be sat in Dundee. If you are unable to attend, you may be able to sit these at approved examination centres by special arrangement. If you do not sit your exams in Dundee, you will be responsible for paying any associated costs charged by the examination centre.
