Write learning outcomes that link to the graduate profile

Back to the Design your course homepage.

The Business School has developed embedded graduate profiles for each of its programmes so that students, staff, and employers can see the specific capabilities our students will develop. The following steps will show you how to write learning outcomes that link to the graduate profile and how to add these to the Business School’s course outline template at the individual course level. See our resources on the graduate profile for more information about the graduate profile and mapping at the programme level.
