Academic Experience

Each lesson is live and taught by a tutor via Zoom

Includes a pre-course Zoom meeting between the tutor and the student for level assessment and needs analysis.

Before the start of the course, the student is sent an assignment to be completed before the course and a short reading list.

All students who successfully complete this course are eligible for a Course Certificate. Completion consists of submitting the final course assignment. Certificates are sent by email after the end of the course.

Students are set two pieces of work. The first is a piece of writing of 250 words and is due halfway through the course. This does not count towards the final outcome but preparing for it is practice for the assessed piece of work at the end of the course, which is a piece of writing of 500 words.
