Independent Study


Independent study is an intrinsically worthwhile developmental experience and provides an opportunity for students to customise their learning programme through individually negotiated sets of learning objectives and activities.  Within this module students will be expected to focus their individual study within the context of health, social care or education (HSCE) to explore an area of personal interest and professional relevance.  In so doing a critical literature review of the chosen topic will be developed, which addresses both the module outcomes and the student generated learning objectives.

This is an SCQF Level 11 module and upon successful completion, participants will be awarded 20 credits.
