Definition of courses and T&D requirements

Each year, prior to the start of the academic year, the School confirms the courses to be provided in the coming academic year, and then agrees the T&D requirements for any courses using T&D as part of teaching delivery.

Please note that final T&D requirements may be adjusted slightly in the second week of term, depending on final student numbers and hence the number and size of classes.
