A comprehensive induction programme will be scheduled the week prior to the start of the formal teaching. The induction programme will orient students with the course website, resources, IT training, library training, and primer material.

No experimental facilities are provided as students will not be undertaking research during the course. When you visit Oxford you will have access to the libraries and college facilities, but you will not have a dedicated work space as the course is mainly provided online.


Academic support is available through any member of the academic team, as well as through your assigned dissertation supervisor (MSc). Pastoral support can be sought through your college advisor (MSc), course advisor (PgDip) or through the Director of Graduate Studies. The department also has a widening access officer should you need advice on learning disabilities, special equipment requirements or access issues.
