Environmental Law and Management
This programme allows students to study from home (whether in the UK or overseas) and keep in contact with tutors by email, telephone, fax and/or post. Students can also maintain contact with one another, both during and after their studies, offering invaluable peer support and networking opportunities. Students are guided through each of the LLMs by a module handbook containing notes, reading lists and self-assessment questions. All the documents on the reading lists are provided either electronically through the University�s electronic resources, by direct links to the worldwide web, as digitised documents on Blackboard (the University�s on-line learning/teaching facility) or, exceptionally, as hard copy. Core text books are issued on loan with the module handbook and returned with the module assignment. Staff-student interchange is facilitated by coursework materials, telephone contact, email and written responses to coursework submissions. The weekend residential schools provide the opportunity to meet with tutors, guest lecturers and fellow students and to reinforce the student's understanding of the subjects during lectures, discussion sessions and tutorials.
