The value placed on student learning through practise and observation is reflected in the proportion of time allocated to clinical practice within both the BIHS. Clinical experiences will occur under supervision in prepared settings supported by learning objectives that integrate and define theoretical learning. The graduates will therefore have developed a capacity and desire to learn from both experiences in the workplace and through more formal educational opportunities. Professional practice requires the ability to continually integrate theory and practice. This means relating theory to practice and theorising whilst practising, so that theory and practice become one.
