Following lots of discussion and feedback from our last 2 sets of year 1 students (who are now in their second and third years of our programme) we have made the following changes to the year 1 programme:
The number of taught days has increased from 8 to 15 days.
The number of tutors teaching the course has also increased to give more diversity.
A personal tutor will be assigned to each student and they will meet with them (online or telephone) once a month for support throughout the 4 years of the course. (This usually begins from year 2)
Anatomy and physiology will be a key focus of the seminars with a new tutor who specialises in teaching students with no previous experience of science.
Webinar style teaching sessions will take place for students to interact with each other when not at seminar weekends.
Study skills information and support will be given at the start of the course to ensure all students have the right skills to study at this level.
Peer mentoring will be available from year 2 students.
There will be opportunities to attend herbal trips with students from other classes and year groups.
There will be opportunities to visit our herbal medicine clinics.
