    Pre-Study Course, 6MD

    Advertisements



    Just a quick question: how does the online portion of the prestudy course go? Do we have to be online every single day? Would this be through email or through some sort of interactive learning tool?

    I think it's the first time they're doing it at all, they wrote that we should have access to a pc every day for this portion of the studies..
    If anyone has more information I would love to know as well.

    Generally, how would we go about doing the online stuff? Would it just be a list of stuff we have to accomplish for the day, or would there be an actual lesson being taught live? What time would this be during the day, if it is restricted to a common period? Is it possible to catch up on lessons missed on a particular day?

    There really ought to be more information out there about this, as this would help to determine the flexibility of my August schedule.

    I am wondering the same thing. I do not even have the books and I am not planning on buying them until I arrive at the university in August.

    For the online part you should of received a code in your acceptance package. The course is provided by Pearson, they publish a lot of textbooks. The course lasts 3 or 4 weeks and you should spend 1-2 hours each day doing whatever it asks you to do.

    As for catching up on missed days, I don't know I'm sure you can. Also I'm sure you can do it at any time of the day.
