Teaching Timetable 2020-21

 

Summary of changes to be made to the programme for 2020-21

MPhil in Latin American Studies (by advanced study - HULAM1)

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance, we have had to make some changes to the programme in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give you the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation. The changes are:

a) The Core Course will be taught online.

b) Optional modules will be taught in person, as far as possible. We cannot confirm the precise arrangements for each module before 15 October, as the feasibility of holding seminars in person will depend on the total number of students choosing each module, but our intention is to hold seminars for the optional modules in person wherever possible. It may be necessary to move specific seminars online, if the seminar leader or participating students can only take part online (for example, if they need to self-isolate).

c) Individual supervision for essays and the dissertation will take place in person, unless the supervisor or the student in question can only take part online. 

MPhil in Latin American Studies (by thesis only - HULAM2)

We have considered the likely impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance, and can confirm that there will be no substantive changes to the programme based on current guidance. Supervision for the thesis will normally take place in person, as usual. However, it may need to move online if the supervisor or the student in question can only take part online (for example, if they need to self-isolate).
