Teaching & Learning
The MSc is made up of eight courses. Each course is studied in eight-week sessions. You can only take one course at a time, but each course is typically available in at least two of the year's study sessions. This gives you the flexibility to plan how you study during the year, enabling you to fit your study in with your professional, family and personal commitments.
You will be individually assigned an online academic tutor for the duration of each course with whom you can discuss academic queries at regular intervals during the study session. You will also have a named administrator providing you with help and advice throughout your studies.
Before the start of each course you have enrolled in, you will be sent a package containing all of the course materials that you need to complete the course - the core text, textbooks, a collection of key articles, and any course related software.
To make your experience as a distance learning student more complete and rewarding, we provide access to the Online Study Centre, which is a web-accessed learning environment. Via the OSC, you can communicate with your assigned academic tutor, administrators and other students on the course using discussion forums. The OSC also provides access to the course Study Guide and assignments, as well as a selection of electronic journals available on the University of London Online Library.
For each course, you will sit a three-hour examination, held on a specified date in October, and complete two assignments during the course study session. Assignments are submitted and feedback given online. Examinations and assignments are weighted 70:30.
