Preparing to Study
How We Will Learn
On this course you will learn through various methods and means. A large component of learning on this course is self-paced and online. We have developed a series of online activities for each week of study to support your learning journey. We understand that it is difficult to find time to undertake study and fit it around your busy lives. Therefore, we have designed online activities that will take around 20-30 minutes to complete to allow you the flexibility to build these into your own study schedule. As much as possible, try and plan these activities into your week.
We recommend that you create a folder for each week of the course on your desktop (see example below). This will allow you to organise and refer back to your answer templates when required.
As well as your online activities you will be invited to attend a weekly, live, 2-hour workshop. This is a really important opportunity for you to connect with peers on your course, talk to subject experts and monitor your progress and understanding through the course. We can’t wait to meet you and see you here!
This course is a great opportunity for you to develop, grow and learn from one another.
