Programme Structure

Teaching
  • Taught by a team of lecturers with long-standing expertise in the field, you will learn through a mix of lectures, seminars and tutorials.

  • Teaching is on a Monday between 10:00 and 4:00 and this is likely to remain the pattern in the future. Each module is taught over a 4 week period. Full-time students attend every week during term-time and part-time students attend when their modules are being taught. 
  • As part of your studies you’ll also undertake independent study culminating in a dissertation. To help you complete this task you will be supported and supervised by a member of the teaching team.
