Course Offerings

The below list of courses is a summary of the current Postgraduate Coursework offerings in the school. The list also indicates the mode and the semester the course is usually taught. Please note the school may change the semester a course is taught from time to time.

Please click on course codes below for course descriptions and further information about the course. If you have further questions about the course content please contact the lecturer directly.

Courses are offered in the following modes: INTERNAL (Face-to-face) and EXTERNAL (Distance). Some courses may be offered both internally and externally in the same semester.

The School holds a Residential Week before Semester 1 and 2 each year where introductory workshops are held for some courses offered that semester. All workshops are optional and students benefit from attending and getting to know one another (particularly the external students) before the start of semester.  Please refer to the SPHCM Timetables website for further information.

Students enrolling in Summer School courses can either attend intensive classes (over 3-5 days) from mid November to early December or enrol in courses in the Distance mode (that do not require any class attendance). Students complete their final assessment in January. Please note that not all Summer courses are available by distance.

Internal Courses with enrolments less than 20 maybe cancelled. Students will be advised as soon as possible if a course will be cancelled and advised regarding other course options.
