Students are well supported between intensive schools by e-mail tutorials and feedback on an outline and one full draft for each of the assignment. Our teaching team aims to deliver a programme of the highest quality and to use innovative and up-to-date methods for teaching and learning.

In order to avoid conflict with students’ working schedules, the programme provides flexibility to working professionals.  Depending on their duty, students can choose to attend either the morning (8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) or the evening (6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.) session on each seminar day.
