The session is based on a study of the impact of changes to teaching systems whereby students complete modules sequentially rather than consequently. The issues of retention and attainment are closely linked; although students withdraw from programmes for a variety of reasons lack of attainment is one important factor. Students who feel that they failing to achieve marks that allow them to progress become disillusioned and lose motivation. This project seeks to identify if the block teaching system and the effects of implementing the system can have a positive impact on retention and attainment.
