Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
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 diary to record your learning and cultural experiences. Upon return to the University of Bradford you will submit this for assessment and give a presentation about the period of living and studying abroad to current students, during your first semester back. During your year abroad a tutor from the University of Bradford will remain in contact with you and can provide feedback on your journal.
