Timetable Information for Online Classes and Tutorials

Students are asked to enrol onto the course in the first instance. Once enrolment is closed, we will present you with a number of potential online class time-slots during the week, and you can let us know which times are most convenient.

We will then give detailed instructions on how to follow the course online, and confirm the weekly class time-slot that you have been allocated to. In this way, we hope that the ‘live’ classes via videoconferencing software are all comprised of small groups of roughly the same size.

Please be aware, there is no danger that you will be stuck paying for a course that you cannot attend. If it turns out that none of the time-slots are convenient for you, please let us know and we will be happy to refund the price of the course in full.

Enrolment information

Enrolment for Michaelmas term courses will open shortly.
