The courses last for twenty weeks, ten weeks in semester 1 and ten weeks in semester 2, with two hours of teaching and learning per week. The courses are delivered through small group teaching, with a maximum of 16 students per class.
The courses do not include any formal tests. Your tutor may run some informal tests in class to monitor your progress, but they will not be taken into account as formal evaluation. However, if you wish to take a test, you will be able to do so (a £50 fee applies).
