Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 300 hours of work. This breaks down into about 32 hours of contact time and about 268 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.
