Module availability

The link below shows all the modules offered by the School. Module specifications provide full details about the aims and objectives of each module, what you will study, how the module is assessed and whether there are any prerequisites that have to be met before registering for the module.

Module schedule

Each module takes place once per year. Teaching for Term 1 modules usually occurs over ten weeks, and five weeks for Terms 2 and 3 modules. The time students are required to attend the School will vary according to the teaching strategy of the module, but will usually be 20-45 hours for Term 1 modules and 50-60 hours for Terms 2 and 3 modules. Learning time, including reading, is estimated to be 150 hours per module.
