Q: Module – Can I study more than one module?
A: All the modules run in parallel through the weekend and you are asked to nominate the module for which you are most likely to attend sessions plus any others you may wish to attend.
Attendance at sessions for other than the primary module will depend on space in the teaching room and will be at the discretion of the tutor. Tutors will be asked to provide any handouts they produce for all students who declare an interest in their module.
You may request a change to your nomination at any time prior to the weekend, provided that the module group you wish to join is not full.
