We have a home campus but this is self managed learning so a lothappens at a distance. Everyone will have an academic adviser to help. An estimate of the time it will take during the 12 week semesters is approximately 6 hours per week. Schedule this into your own diary. We work with social media, digital media and paper copies. Deadlines for drafts and final work are important.
Some administrative points for BAPP (Arts)1. Keep in contact and update your advisers and Avni Shah theWBL administrator with your correct contact details.2. Students cards should be processed for this module so that youwill have them when you need them.3. We need to choose one new student representatives for BAPP(Arts) this year. Liam Conman is our current volunteer. Please workwith him and other peers to help us improve the programme.4. BAPP (Arts) feedback forms are at the end of the Modules youtake. The form will most likely be on Survey Monkey. We valuefeedback and have used your feedback in our planning of the newcurriculum for BAPP (Arts).
