Note that the next intake for the part time course is in 2014 [with applications taken in the month of October 2013]. The part time course follows the same curriculum as the full time course, split into four semesters as follows:
Year 1 first semester: the same coursework structure of the full timers is run over 16 teaching weeks – that is, a seminar and assignment every two weeks. The seminar is an audio recording of the full time seminar and its assignment, uploaded on an mp3 file. Students have a week to complete the first draft of their assignment, which is shared in small groups of 4 or 5 using a combination of written comments and an audio group feedback session. After the comments they submit a final version.
Year 1 second semester: coursework continues, but as with the full time course, the students choose a genre stream and begin their extended thesis project. The seminar-assignment cycle focuses on the thesis project with its assignments feeding into aspects of the project.
Year 2: students continue their extended project with their supervisors. A draft is handed in at the beginning of August and a final version in November.
