The students start with a full-time one-day study session (using the study guide and DVDs), with no preparation required. On this first day, they start their first exercise assignment (which involves editing a piece of complex writing). The team subsequently has one week within which to submit the completed exercise assignment. The second exercise assignment is then started and completed in week two. This assignment involves each student's own writing. The examination assignment is received at the end of week 2, and must be completed within a week.
Each student is awarded a certificate upon successful completion of the course. The certificate states that the student has successfully completed the team-based MDL course in 'Professionally Applied English', and, where the team achieves a distinction, this is clearly so indicated. The general international fee for 2012 is £295.00 (this includes all materials, online support, assessments and examination, and courier to the team coordinator's door).
