When not attending lectures, seminars, workshops or other timetabled sessions you will continue learning through self-study. Typically, this involves reading journal articles and books, undertaking research in the library, using the virtual learning environment, working on preparing for coursework assignments / examinations, workshops and seminars. Your module tutor will direct you towards specific readings and/or activities to complete before class.
For the Dissertation you will undertake independent research. You will work under the supervision of a member of the course team and will meet with your supervisor regularly.
