Module aims

The aim of Advanced Modules is to provide students with an opportunity to return to an issue raised in the corresponding third year Taught Module, having had the opportunity to reflect, under the guidance of the Tutor, on the module content as a whole together perhaps with the content of other, related modules students may have taken. The outcome of this reflection is an essay of 2500 words relating to that issue.
