Teaching sessions take place on Tuesday evenings (6-9pm) and consist of lecture and tutorial components. Internal students are required to attend the teaching sessions throughout semester. If students are unable to attend they should inform Sara ahead of time and make alternative arrangements. If students are unable to attend for their allocated group presentation, they will be required to present appropriate documentation (e.g. medical certificate).
GEOP709 is a 4-credit point postgraduate unit, consisting of a total workload of 150 hours. It is therefore expected that students will devote approximately 10hrs per week over 15 weeks to meet the requirements of the unit.
