Normally lectures will be made available at the beginning of the week. Week numbers are sequential per term. Each TERM roughly coincides with a particular module. There will be deviations for a few individual lectures, in order to pace delivery of more difficult subjects. Some "weeks" in Terms 1 and 2 have a release which is intended to be studied over a 2-week period.
Official start date October 2nd.
Please complete enrolment including payment by Friday December 1st.
