Outside the UK
Synchronous tutorials and communications could be difficult to deliver to students outside the UK due to time differences. If you can’t attend the synchronous tutorials or make synchronous communications, you can use asynchronous alternative methods, such as watching recorded tutorials and emailing questions.
If you haven’t studied EE830, we highly recommend you complete our badged open course Looking globally: the future of education. This free six-week course runs twice a year – in March and October.
