HOW YOU'LL BE TAUGHT

The programme is delivered through a combination of online module materials, optional face-to-face teaching, and independent study, allowing you to fit your studies around other commitments. A wide variety of resources is made available via the online study platform, including: lecture notes, videos, specialist resources from the Centre for Academic Writing library collection, and discussion forums, as well as information on the academic writing research projects and findings produced by members of teaching staff.

Module lecturers will be available to address your questions and to offer guidance relating to your studies. As a student on this course, you will also be allocated a Personal Tutor, who will provide pastoral care and support.

Starting in September each year, the PGDip is designed to be studied over 2 years either by blended learning or distance learning.

At each stage of the programme, you will have the opportunity to attend a short, residential workshop (up to 5 days) to provide core learning. Although these workshops are optional, we strongly encourage attendance to underpin your learning, to meet your cohort and teachers, and to build your professional network. Workshops may be held at Coventry University’s main campus in Coventry, or in another location. (Please note: There is no additional teaching fee for the optional workshops. However, you will need to organise and pay for your own accommodation, food, and travel, including any visa costs). Students who are unable to attend the workshops can study independently using online materials.
