Teaching organisation

This unit involves 150 hours of focused learning, or the equivalent of 10 hours per week for 15 weeks. The total includes formally structured learning activities such as lectures, tutorials and online learning. The remaining hours typically involve reading, research, and the preparation and submission of tasks for assessment.

Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit enables flexibility in the offering of electives and specialised studies for advanced undergraduates. It provides the possibility of offering a unit meeting the specific needs of a group of students or reflecting the particular expertise of staff or a visiting scholar.

The unit will contribute to the development of broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge and provide opportunities for cognitive maturity in analysis, a flexible methodological approach which is able to accommodate unpredictable or complex problems, and an ability to communicate ideas of this nature to others.
