- Paper Structure
Modules are typically 10 lectures and may include tutorials/group discussions. Some modules are assessed 'internally' during the year through a combination of assignments, presentations and/or exams; otherwise, modules are assessed by exam in October.
BSc(Hons/PGDipSci/MSc students choose 12, 8 or 4 modules depending on whether HAZA 401 (or other approved) papers are chosen.
Textbooks are not required for this paper. However, individual lecturers may recommend literature to be consulted.
