mode of delivery

Students are required to attend live online (timetabled) lectures and participate in tutorials as well as undertake self study online (un-timetabled) via resources provided. You will also have readings, exercises and assignments to do as well as an End of Term test and/or recital.


Your lectures are all pre-recorded. This lets you go at your own pace and watch the lecture or parts of it again if you need to. You can feel secure while you study that the content you need is at your finger tips and you can reach out to your lecturers and our professionals for further advice.

Tutorials give you the opportunity for interaction and to ask questions. This is done through LIVE-Online classrooms, pre-recorded tutorials or other forums where you submit questions, recordings or your other work. You get feedback from staff and at times, from other students
