      This course has no exams, instead there will be a number of tutor marked assessments (TMAs) to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the course materials, with the tutor sending comments to guide you through any areas of potential difficulty, as well as a range of self-assessments that are indicators that you understand the materials as you work through them.

      These are for your own information and do not need to be shown to your course tutor.

      Paper based pack

      We will send a study pack to you by courier, including your course materials and a study guide to help you through the student process.
