The module is delivered via two 2-hour sessions a week, over 9 weeks. To complete the module successfully you must also allocate a substantial amount of independent study time. The five weeks following the 2-hour sessions will enable you to focus on your assignments.
Most sessions comprise a formal lecture of approximately one hour and a seminar. You will have the opportunity to discuss your progress on the module with the Module Tutors at any stage. In order to do so, you are encouraged to make appointments in order to see your tutor at mutually convenient times.
