I am enquiring under the Freedom of Information act as to the study commitment required for the MBA program. I did complete the online enquiry form 2 weeks ago but heard nothing back. During COVID & the first wave of the pandemic what was the arrangements for students currently on the course? What are the current arrangements seeing as we are in a second wave & universities are remaining open? 
How many study hours are required on a weekly basis?
How much of the teaching is via Blackboard & self-directed study? 
Dear Sir/Madam,

During the first wave of lockdown, 10 weeks of study had already concluded, and the rest of the 2 weeks were moved online. Last week (week 13) is always kept for revision and extra support. There was no reduction in contact hours as per module requirement.

For the 1st term of the new Academic Year, keeping in line with Government regulations of social distancing, we are following a blended learning. Of the 12 weeks of delivery (till Christmas break), 25% is F2F and the rest is online. Again, there is no reduction of contact hours. Per module , the students must engage for 150 hours of which 39 hours is direct contact (F2F or via online delivery through BB or Teams). This has not been changed during the second wave of lockdown.

Last week (week 13) post-Christmas is again for revision and further support.

There have been two assessment discussions along with recording uploaded. There will be 1:1 formative discussion in week 10 for some modules and for some there are mock exams to prepare the students. This is additional to the 1:1 that are available to students to discuss pre-formative for additional support (depending on the module).

The above is for the stand-alone MBA.

Then, we have the Blended learning which is taught along with the apprenticeship delivery and the students get 3x3 F2F sessions per module (no change to that and the same have already been held for this term of the AY). Remaining 9 weeks is 1-hour webinar (usual practice for this delivery - again no change). 
 The module delivery team is using different ways of delivery to enhance the learning experience of the student. 
Again, there have been pre-formative and formative 1:1 discussion. Additional assessment support (over and above the contact hours) via online webinar have been made available to the students too.

Timetable for standalone MBA is as follows (no change from previous years):

Wednesdays - 2 modules - 12-3 and 4-7 
Thursdays - 2 modules - 12-3 and 4-7 

Blended (along with the apprentices' delivery): is held on a Tuesday/Wednesday (depending on when they started the cohort.

Then we have the project delivery (held 3 times an Academic Year) - October, January, and May. We moved to online delivery from May 2019. The project always has a large cohort of MoD students and the online delivery has been welcomed. The students get 1:1 support for the presentation post which supervisors are allocated, and the students need to work with their supervisors for completion of the final project dissertation. The discussions with supervisors (irrespective of the lockdown) has generally happened via phone, Skype or Teams (as for the dissertation, mostly students complete from their homes) - there has been no effect of the lockdown on supervisory support.

Other that the above, all the students are the Academic Mentees of the course leader and they have had opportunity to discuss the course, other modules, and any pastoral requirements.
