15. Personal Development Planning
This is not new but is something you should already be engaged in through your
employment. Personal Development Planning (PDP) is a process designed to assist
you to get the most from your time as a student at the university. It is intended to
provide you with a structured and supported process through which you can reflect on
your learning, performance and/or achievements and plan for your personal,
educational and career development. By becoming actively involved in PDP you can
improve your capacity to understand what and how you are learning, and how to
review, plan and take responsibility for your own learning and future development.
16. Admissions criteria
Programme Specifications include minimum entry requirements, including academic
qualifications, together with appropriate experience and skills required for entry to
