Staff Profile

Tom Bradshaw

"I love the buzz of covering live sporting events. My career in the industry has allowed me to do this across radio, national newspapers, regional newspapers and websites. I've worked as a match commentator, a summariser and as a pundit for BBC Radio and I’ve also broken exclusive sports news stories for a range of multimedia outlets, including South African newspapers and Radio 5 Live. In 2010 and 2011 I was named Sports Journalist of the Year at the EDF Energy South West Media Awards."

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
