This programme is delivered over one year and takes place over two 12-week semesters: September–December and January–May. The workshops are held two evenings per week (generally Mondays and Tuesdays) from 4.30pm to 7.30pm. In addition, two weekend workshops will be organised externally, one per semester. 100% attendance is required
Assessments and Workload
Participants are required to complete two 2-hour open book examinations at the end of semester 1 and semester 2. Continuous assessment assignments are completed during each semester and where these are for-credit, marks awarded count towards the final examination. The majority of continuous assessment assignments are completed in pre-assigned work groups. Participants can earn between 10% and 30% of marks through continuous assessment with the remaining marks coming from the 2-hour open book written examinations.
