The Department encourages applications from students wishing to register for one of the above degrees on a part-time basis. The Department recognises that part-time study enables a wider access to our courses; moreover, given the financial problems posed by postgraduate study, part-time registration may be the most realistic alternative for some applicants. Approximately one third of our students register on a part-time basis.

Part-time registration involves a student taking courses over two academic years, rather than the one year for full-time students. Students take approximately half their courses in each year; with the preparation of the dissertation being undertaken after the second year. The registration fees are correspondingly reduced. In 1997-98, the annual registration fee for part-time students is 1,029.

Following our established practice, in 1997-98 it will be possible for part-time M.A./PG Diploma students to follow all their courses on one day each week. All first year compulsory courses will be timetabled on Fridays, along with other options. Moreover, second year options will be scheduled so as to allow part-time students to attend for only one day each week (typically Tuesdays or Fridays). Final timetables are available in September.

It is hoped that these provisions will allow part-time students to have outside employment for up to four weekdays each week, for example.

As the Department seeks to renew and update its course offerings, it cannot guarantee that any individual optional courses will be available in any particular year.

If applicants have any queries on part-time provisions, they should be addressed to the Postgraduate Secretary in the Department of European Studies.
