Note for undergraduate students Please be aware that these classes may be rather different in style to the classes you are used to in the full-time University programme. The classes are typically small and mostly consist of part-time and mature students. Traditionally they are discussion-based classes rather than lectures, in which students are encouraged to contribute their own observations and questions under the guidance of the tutor. Undergraduate students are nonetheless very welcome to join.
