Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Study abroad years are voluntary and the diet of modules chosen, and/or your industrial placement will be relevant to your University of Bradford degree and agreed with your School. You will normally study the equivalent of 120 credits of modules and be expected to achieve the equivalent of a pass at ordinary level in order to be eligible for the award of the Diploma. Your study abroad experience is to be taken in addition to the 360 credits you study towards your degree, but will not form part of your Degree award. The range and variety of teaching and learning methods will depend on your diet of study at the partner institution. In addition to your study and assessment at the partner institution, you will keep a detailed diary to record your learning and cultural experiences. Upon return to the University of Bradford you will submit this diary/ reflection for assessment and give a presentation about the period of living/studying/working abroad to current students, during your first semester back. The presentation may include a demonstration of your newly acquired language ability. During your year abroad a tutor from the University of Bradford will remain in contact with you and can provide feedback on your journal.
