Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
You will study an equivalent Year 2 or 3 programme (during either Trimester 1, 2 or 3) at an approved host institution overseas. Prior to studying overseas you will undertake a series of preparatory sessions which will assist you to prepare culturally and academically.

Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to Los The main learning process is through immersion in the actual overseas study experience which will focus on the personal and programme learning outcomes you have identified. Undertaking a minimum of 12 weeks of study you will reflect on the learning achieved from your experience through observation and the learning undertaken at the host institution. (Covers all LOs.)

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills The increasingly international nature of today’s society means that students who have international experience and an understanding of the importance of cultural differences will have greater employability potential. This module is designed to provide these skills in such a way as to enable the student to articulate the benefits an overseas experience provides. The linkage to personal and programme learning outcomes also directly supports personal development, knowledge and understanding. In addition the production of a reflective commentary supports the development of self-reflection and scholarship skills.


Formative Assessment:
Formative assessment is provided in the early stages of the overseas study in the preparatory sessions undertaken prior to your study overseas. The summative assessment is the Reflective Commentary that you produce following the overseas study period. In this you will critically reflect on the learning achieved whilst overseas including your experience outside of the classroom and the influence of cultural differences and relate these to the personal and programme outcomes you have identified. (Covers all LOs).
