The provision of feedback to students regarding academic performance is an important feature of the MPharm programme as this allows the academic ability of students to be maximised. In addition, feedback is an important component of the development of first year students, enabling them to make a successful transition from secondary to tertiary education. There are several formats of academic feedback including, written feedback associated with submitted assignments and laboratory practical books and verbal feedback during laboratory classes, tutorials and workshops. Personal tutors will also give verbal feedback concerning academic performance to tutees. The School of Pharmacy aims to provide timely feedback to all students at key times within each module.
