*Although the pattern of modules repeats annually, these modules are only offered biennially.

Exams are normally held on the Friday closest to the end of the month as shown, but dates may be adjusted to accommodate bank holidays and other substantive factors.

The course is offered in one-week blocks of intensive tuition that would usually be delivered on a face-to-face basis on campus at Lancaster University. However, on account of coronavirus, the situation will be kept under review and decisions about the mode of delivery will be made as appropriate in the light of developments.
