Summary

The purpose of this award is to offer a unique and personal approach to Postgraduate education to individuals, or groups of individuals who wish to engage in the design, organisation, coordination and negotiation of their own learning which reflects their personal and/or professional needs.
The structure and choice of the content you negotiate as part of your award, is congruent with a philosophy of adult learning. As a student you will embrace responsibility for your own learning, using initiative and insight to discover what you need to learn with learning intrinsically related to your personal context and experience. Within this process, you will learn to reflect upon experience, developing new concepts, attitudes and behaviours to apply to future decision making and judgements. Through negotiation of learning activities and outcomes prior experience is valued and as a student you will become personally engaged in learning in a way that is personally motivating and significant to you.
In recognition of the uniqueness of experience, the individuality of journey is central to the award philosophy with students able to:
- Study at your own pace and convenience

- Negotiate aims and learning outcomes tailored to experience and context

- Negotiate the nature and form of your learning activities

- Negotiate an appropriate method of assessing your learning

In order to facilitate this individual journey a Negotiated Learning Advisor will support you throughout your award, enabling you to develop a Learning Contract that demonstrates at least 25% of the Award is achieved through negotiated learning modules.
PG Certificate and PG Diploma options may also be available.
