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. A liberal estimate of the time it will take during the 12 week study periods is approximately 6 hours per week (or more). Schedule this into your own diary as study time so that the work can fit around your other jobs. We work with social media, digital media and paper copies. Deadlines for drafts and final work are important.

Hi Paula, the apples were props used in the Gravity section. They were filled withhelium and at a certain point were released on a line at the same time, it was awonderful effect... The other props are red tents, representing activists campingoutside the Nuclear Atomic Weapons establishment during the period the UK werecampaigning against Nuclear Weapons etc..
The two cast members on the right were representing eye lashes. They were onthe top of a pole (approx 30 feet high) swaying and the whole picture could beseen from an aerial shot of an eye. My cast friend and I were walking aroundbackstage before our section to perform and we took plenty of backstage shots.
I didnt mention the two photos sent were ofBeverly Knight who sang in the Finale I amwhat I am we happened to be at the rightplace and lucky to have a photo with her. Theother photo was of a Russian Paralympian whoinsisted on having a photo with our group. Hewas rather good looking!!This was when the Cauldron was lit, we werewith the other cast members watching. I was delighted to receive a personal letter from the Prime Minister thanking me, us volunteers for taking time out to volunteer. That was a very much appreciated gesture. BW Corinda
