Contact Hours and Independent Study
Weekly contact hours on this programme may vary depending on the individual module options chosen and the stage of the study.
The postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend at least four-five hours in an independent study.
Optional modules will run as far as minimum student numbers are met. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of modules to some students. As the options reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
