Applied Course through Multimedia Distance Learning
There are two versions of the ‘Advanced Writing Skills’ course: the ‘independent individual course’ (3 to 6 months) and the ‘individual course for master’s or doctoral students’ (12 to 24 months). The different admission criteria, syllabus structures and fees for these two courses are explained below.
Independent Individual Course (3 to 6 months)
This course is available to all those who have successfully completed the short course, ‘Professional English’, achieving a mark of 60% or higher. ‘Advanced Writing Skills’ gives you the opportunity to apply yourself in attaining higher levels of skill in accurate and correct writing. It is based on practical hands-on development, relying predominantly on the close interaction between lecturer and student. For more information, please see the full MDL information document.
The course is available to any person in any country. You may register online at any time. The step-by-step study guide is sent to you online (as PDF) upon payment of the full tuition fee. The general international fee for 2012 is £385.00. Persons based in Africa may pay the lower fee of R3485.00. The course should take around three to four months to complete.
Individual Course for Master’s and Doctoral Students (12 to 24 months)
This course is available to all master’s or doctoral students (at any higher education institution) who have already successfully completed the short course, ‘Professional English’. For MComPM and PhD students at Cranefield College, the course is offered as a further advanced elective (with some exceptions).
You may register online at any time, and may start the course upon payment of the full tuition fee. The administration will then provide the contact details of your personal lecturer.
The 2012 fee for the master’s/doctoral advanced writing course for persons based in Africa is R4485.00, and the (non-African) international fee is £485.00. The course duration will vary according to your needs. For more information, please see the full MDL information document.
