Student workshops

*NOTE: The previously held Saturday face to face workshop has now been replaced by a series of virtual workshops.

Each module includes a series of online workshops. The workshops are conducted by senior academics and practitioners who provide a balance of guidance on examination and assignment preparation with actual practical work-based applications of theory included in the module content.

The workshops provide:

  • an opportunity for students to discuss in detail practical case studies relating to specific areas of study
  • an opportunity to connect with fellow students from diverse organisational backgrounds
  • a chance to evaluate your progress
  • an opportunity to acquire valuable guidance from tutors around examination and assignment expectations
