2019

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

A reading subject is based on study that is more personal, but still planned and pre-approved. A reading subject is still supervised, but the learning is more independent. Students who wish to enrol will need to secure the agreement of a member of academic staff to supervise them. Staff members are not obliged to agree, as this subject is a workload extra for them. The arrangement must be approved by the disciplinary honours coordinator.
