Course Content
The course contains four modules. The course is complete in itself and you do not need to buy any other materials. However, many students, particularly if they are trying for high grades, chose to undertake a certain amount of further reading from the suggested book list.
You will need approximately 45 hours to complete each module including the assignments. Each module has two assignments that you must complete and send to your tutor by e-mail or post. Your tutor will mark and grade your work. The modules also have self-correcting exercises along with the answer key and accompanying notes to help you see your own progress on the course.
You can e-mail or write to your personal tutor as often as you need to. Your tutor will do his or her best to reply to you the same or following day. If your assignment needs to be improved your tutor will make helpful suggestions. You can submit each assignment up to three times without further payment. If after the third attempt your work is still below a passing grade of C additional charges will be made to cover the additional administrative cost of marking your work. The course includes reading, setting tasks, self-correcting exercises and written assignments.
