How are the courses delivered?
The venues we use and the way in which the courses are delivered vary from year to year. It depends upon the subject area and a continuation of successful partnerships that have been established over recent years. Course dates also vary but are often determined by living organisms and their seasons! Popular courses are offered every year but others are only offered every few years.
Many courses are now taught intensively over three days at venues with a residential option. They are becoming very popular with our local students and are also ideal for professional development. Intensive courses give students from all over the country the opportunity to study in Wales, enhancing course dynamics and experiences.
Non-intensive courses have short, weekly sessions or have longer half day or full day sessions with plenty of time between to allow for your own study. The majority of courses are taught through practical, hands-on workshops and involve some field-work. Several courses have a major field-work element. All courses involve 20 contact hours with the tutor.
