Note on Basic and Advanced courses
Providing they have the pre-requisites, and the agreement of their supervisors, first year research students may choose to take one or more Advanced modules in place of Basic modules.
All students must register for LTCC courses by completing the online form on the Registration page. (Please note that attendance impacts departmental contributions, therefore students are encouraged to register and deregister correctly.)
(Please note that a fee of £185 per course is payable for students who do not belong to an LTCC member department.)
'Light' assessments are held for every basic and advanced course. Basic exams will take place in the Spring term, usually in April. Assessments for advanced courses will take place at the end of each module. First year students are expected to take four assessments, although exceptions will apply in individual cases. Please check with your supervisors to confirm how many exams you should be taking.
All lectures take place in the conference rooms at De Morgan House unless otherwise stated.
Lectures take place every Monday over five weeks. For abstracts please click on the links in the table below. Links to notes are also provided where available. Please note that the rooms are subject to change.
