The student voice for this module is captured through a variety of formal and informal mechanisms to enable the improvement and enhancement of the module. Formal mechanisms include through the module evaluation questionnaires which are conducted towards the end of the module (note: these will be conducted online), contacting student representatives and discussion at the programme committee meetings. Other mechanisms include informal discussions between staff and students during the teaching sessions or in email. These interactions allow the module to be developed and kept current.
