Social Policy and Practice

We have listened to the feedback you have given us and these are the changes we have made:


  • A need to revise the contents of modules generally and to make them more engaging [Actioned: these modules have now been refreshed and new content incorporated]
  • A desire for more choice [Actioned: More choice is being included in assessment and topics within modules as well as in terms of placement opportunities every year. A new module is being incorporated at Level 6 (SS652)
  • A desire to avoid assessment bunching in semester 2 in light of the dissertation [Actioned: we have developed long thin modules to facilitate this. In addition, new forms of assessment outlined in table 1 below include a much wider variety of formats and choice of assessment at every level]
  • A desire for more guidance with assessments [Actioned; this review has enabled us to include formative assignments to further develop this aspect. All modules now include  the chance for students to submit formative assignments and to receive feedback]
  • Low contact hours [Actioned: contact hours have been increased, especially in level 4 to four hours per week per module]
  • More module resources [Ongoing action: we continue to work closely with our colleagues in Information Services to ensure we address this]
