PDP for undergraduates

During your time as an undergraduate student, you will be provided with plenty of opportunities to reflect on your progress and to think about what you want to improve and develop.

PDP is delivered mainly through your department and may involve some, or all, of the following kinds of activities:

  • modules, workshops and resources designed to support your transition to HE-Level study;
  • workshops and resources focussing on particular academic skills areas (for example, essay-writing, presentation skills, or managing your dissertation);
  • reflective individual and group learning activities, including reflective portfolios;
  • the opportunity to meet with your personal tutor to discuss your progress and development;
  • documentation to help you to record your progress, reflect on areas for improvement, and plan for your development;
  • dedicated employability and career-development activities, workshops and events;
  • modules and courses on employability.

Many of these PDP activities involve close collaboration between your department and relevant support services such as the Library, Learning Development, and the Career Development Service.
