You will be studying with students from all parts of the world. Debates on the discussion forums take place throughout the term and their flexible nature allows you to contribute to the discussion in your free time, around your other commitments.
We use state-of-the-art software to run live seminars in virtual classrooms, where using audio, video and text chat you can communicate with your tutor and fellow students. With your flexibility in mind, we strongly encourage but don’t require you to attend the live seminars. They’re all recorded to give you an opportunity to review them at your convenience; if you have any points you’d like to add, you can join the ensuing discussion on the forum.
Times of the live seminars are arranged to suit the majority of students on the course (who, most likely, will live in different time zones).
You will also take part in lively discussions on the course forum with fellow students and with guidance from the course author.
