The module requires 150 hours of study over six months.
You will need to ensure that you have the knowledge and experience to study at postgraduate level. Please note, if you subsequently decide to study another Open University module, you will have to meet that module’s entry requirements.
You will also need an appropriate ability in English language, sufficient to be able to work effectively at postgraduate level; generally this means capability equivalent to an International English Language Test System (IELTS) score of 6.5. To assess your English language skills in relation to your proposed studies you can visit the IELTS website. If you are unsure whether your skill level in English is adequate you may find it helpful to look at our Skills for OU Study site.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the module, please speak to an adviser.
