Quick Reference

This term describes a course or programme of study which is made up of a number of modules, each of which is taught and assessed as a separate unit of the whole. Normally, students may, if they choose, gain accreditation for one or more module without necessarily going on to complete the full course at that time. An advantage of modular courses is that they can allow students to accumulate modules over time, allowing them, if necessary, to take breaks (intercalate) between modules and to accumulate sufficient for the full qualification within a designated time period. See also credit; module; module specification.
