The curriculum comprises thirteen compulsory modules of varying length and intensity across three terms: In addition, a series of regular 'master-classes' is scheduled in which internationally-recognised senior scientists in population health from Oxford, and elsewhere, will give seminars on selected topics. These sessions will be outside of the structure of the core modules, and are intended to provide the students with stimulating materials to integrate population health thinking and perspectives. Skills training sessions including presentation and academic writing skills and journal clubs will be provided to supplement the core curriculum. Pattern of teaching and learning The teaching is delivered through a range of methods, including lectures, seminars, workshops, student presentations, self-directed learning and study. During the first two terms there are a series of formative assessments designed to enable teaching staff to monitor student progress. These assessments are compulsory but the marks do not contribute to the final degree. All students are provided with detailed feedback that will enable them to improve their learning by helping them identify their strengths and weaknesses. There are five summative assessments in total. At the end of the Easter break a data set analysis and report (10%), and an extended essay (10%) are submitted. At the beginning of the third term, there are two examinations involving two written papers comprising multi-component questions (20% each). Following the written examinations students will undertake a research placement, leading to a dissertation (40%).
