Negotiated Learning

There is no formal taught content to this module and the subject/focus of the module is chosen by you, in partnership with your employer and learning facilitator. The University facilitates learning via academic support, relevant guidance materials and access to resources. Workshop sessions will be student-led to critically analyse your learning and development and peer critique is a fundamental component of the module. Negotiated Learning modules can either be undergraduate or postgraduate level.

For students wishing to undertake a level 5 negotiated learning module as a route to level 6 (first degree) study via the BSc Healthcare Practice please note the following:

  • If a student has a level 5 (diploma level) professional qualification from a UK institution it would not normally be necessary to undertake a level 5 module, although, if a student had not studied for many years or had previously studied outside the UK, it might be beneficial to do so and they should discuss learning objectives that will enable them to enhance and refresh their academic skills.
  • Students with overseas professional qualifications will need to undertake the NARIC process in order to determine the UK level to which their qualification matches. Please go to naric.org.uk for more information on this process.
  • For those whose certified professional qualifications are either below diploma level from the UK or from overseas institutions that following NARIC map to UK level 4 or lower it is recommended that they undertake a level 5 negotiated learning module as described above but also make contact with the programme director for the programme to which they wish to apply to discuss their specific situation. It may be necessary for them to undertake study of more than one module at level 5 prior to commencing the BSc Healthcare Practice.
