Although you will study much of the course by distance learning, it is important that you feel part of a coherent group and that you meet others on the course as well as your academic and commercial tutors. This is one of the reasons why the practical resource management module will be delivered as a seven-day intensive residential course. This method of delivery has also been chosen because it is the most efficient use of time for those in work or studying abroad.
