The International Experience Placement modules provide an opportunity for students to extend their understanding of their degree subject area by a period of study abroad. The module will also raise students' awareness of cross-cultural and transnational issues as they apply both within and outside their degree subject. It is expected that the modules, as part of their degree course, will enhance students’ experience and employment opportunities.
Each student will spend an extended period studying at a Host Institution overseas. During the module students will pursue studies relevant to the degree subject area. They will also learn about the country in which they are based, with particular emphasis on understanding and applying subject-specific knowledge in a different cultural setting. The content of the modules will be designed for each student in discussion with the Host Institution and will include elements of directed learning and/or supervision.
(Grade B; mark range 60-69%) The report is logically structured. It contains detailed descriptive text relating to the knowledge acquired by the student. Knowledge directly and indirectly related to the student’s degree subject is described. There is some analysis of the cultural influences on the interpretation and application of subject-specific knowledge but there is little critical evaluation. The report includes substantial content in which the student evaluates her/his learning experience, mainly as a retrospective description of the placement experience with only some emphasis on how the experiences might shape future learning.
(Grade D or C; mark range 40-59%) There are weaknesses in the way that the report is structured, resulting in repetition and/or lack of clarity. It contains descriptive text relating to the knowledge acquired by the student but with evidence that the descriptions have not been fully developed. Knowledge directly related to the student’s degree subject is described but with little emphasis on any other knowledge acquired. There is little analysis of the cultural influences on the interpretation and application of subject-specific knowledge and there is no evidence of critical evaluation. The report includes content in which the student evaluates her/his learning experience, mainly as a retrospective description of the placement experience with little emphasis on how the experiences might shape future learning.
(Grade A; mark range 70-100%) The report is logically structured and with threads that create a holistic, coherent whole. It contains detailed and insightful descriptive text relating to the knowledge acquired by the student. Knowledge directly and indirectly related to the student’s degree subject is described with some exploration of the synergies between the various sources of knowledge. There is a well argued, critical analysis of the cultural influences on the interpretation and application of subject-specific knowledge. The report includes substantial content in which the student evaluates her/his learning experience, both as a retrospective description of the placement experience and as a critical reflection on how the experiences might shape future learning.
Have acquired knowledge that will contribute to their general understanding of their degree subject area and that can be applied to their studies in subsequent modules at Levels 5 and 6.
Be able to evaluate their learning experience in a general and subject-specific context.
Appreciate how understanding and application of subject-specific knowledge is influenced by multi-cultural and transnational issues.

1,200 hours. This equates to a minimum placement of 30 weeks (at 40 hrs/week). Shorter ‘intensive’ placements may also be permitted provided that students can achieve the module learning outcomes. The time allocated to the taught elements and private study will vary depending on the arrangements for each placement, as will the format of the taught elements. The experience of students will be consistent with the following:
Format of Teaching: Tutorials (Introduction to module) 10 Hours Tutorials (in-module) 250 Hours
Teaching Strategy: The Tutorials (in-module) may comprise timetabled training sessions at the Host Institution and/or less formal, but regular, work-placement training. The Tutorials (in-module) will be delivered at the equivalent of 10 hrs per week. The actual times will vary depending on the nature of the placement and specific details will be included in the agreement with the Host Institution.
