The emphasis of this programme is for you to produce assessed work that will be topical, innovative and current to reflect your working practices. Thus assessments have been designed to be flexible and innovative facilitating interprofessional learning and allowing you to produce work relevant to your own workplace.

In all modules there is a formative piece of assessment. These have been designed to be part of the overall assessment to provide you with important feedback on which to build and structure the final piece of work.

Underpinning UDOL’s assessment strategy is the need for practitioners qualifying with specific awards to be fit for purpose and fit for practice. The forms of assessment have therefore been driven by the needs of practice as directed by stakeholders, partners and specialists in the field.

As a programme team we have endeavoured to provide diversity in the assessment types to ensure that we are catering for the variety of learning styles. Similarly, the methods of assessment for each module will be designed to test the learning outcomes of the module. Each module specification outlines the assessment you will undertake.

Our approach to assessment assures:

  • Each assessment has value and relevance to practice and/or the award
  • Academic rigour to test and achieve the module/programme learning outcomes and application to learning
  • Ensures the academic credibility of the programme. Modules are typically assessed through one or more coursework assignments.

Depending on the nature of a given coursework assignment, you will be given the assignment specification at the beginning of the module for hand-in at the end of the module.

Normally, you receive feedback on coursework within three weeks of submission or completion. Modules also provide ample opportunities for formative feedback to guide you in your learning.

Coursework assignments may involve essays, reports, projects, creating artefacts or displays answering or reflecting on questions, or various combinations of these submitted as a portfolio of work. Coursework assignments may be individual or collaborative (ie, involve group work). Some may be based entirely on material covered in online units or others may require independent research. 



  • Have post-graduate experience in an appropriate subject; and
  • To be currently in employment in an arena which will enable the achievement of the individual module learning outcomes e.g. voluntary, public, private, community, acute health and social care arenas.
  • If English is not your first language, you will need IELTS 7.0 or equivalent
