In addition to the time in class, for each module you do around 7 hours of individual or small group self-study, always with a tutor to help and guide you if you need that. After the modules are finished, at assessment time you work on assignments, and if you are a full-time student you will need to devote about forty hours per week to that.
While you are doing self-study and working on assignments, you have available some excellent learning facilities. These include the world-famous Hive with its attractive environment and superb library resources, well-chosen books and extensive on-line reading-material. For each module, the tutors will also have set up a set of on-line web pages with the resources needed to guide you through the module.
Computers and instant printing facilities are readily available, including a main facility which has access 24 hours a day, and there are coffee bars and other places to work in too. Wi-fi is of course available through the university.
