At St George's we offer a broad range of learning environments which include traditional lecture-tutorials, interactive workshops, simulation and practical activities, student-led seminars and web-based delivery.

Teaching methods include classroom-based learning, simulated practical exercises, case-based learning, individual and group working and practice placements. You will also benefit from the support of a personal tutor, peer-group learning and a range of web-based learning materials and online discussion forums.

Practice placements are undertaken in a variety of health and social care environments, including acute NHS hospital trusts, community-based services, mental health services, social care and children’s services. The supervised, hands-on experience you get with clients on placement is the best way to consolidate your learning. Assessed, practice placement blocks take place in all years of study.
