Mode of Study

Campus Learning

 

 

The programme consists of core (required) and elective modules as follows. Some modules may have pre-requisites (i.e. may require the student to pass another module or set of modules first). Some modules may be co-requisite (i.e. such modules are required to be taken together). The number at the end of the module in parenthesis indicates the credit load of the module. 1 credit is equal to 10 hours of learning (guided, inclass and independent combined); therefore a 10-credit module requires on average 100 hours of learning from the student.
