Courses are divided into modules. You will normally take modules totalling 180 credits for the MA.
All Year 1 students are required to participate in the online induction course.
If your own circumstances (time commitments, visa, accommodation etc) allow, you may choose, for one term only, to study in campus in London and take one or two residential modules. We will not be able to sponsor a visa or provide you with accommodation as this is only a flexible option within a distance learning programme.
The course is delivered online, via the King’s College London Virtual Learning Environment (KEATS). You will study through lively online seminars, where everyone will participate in their own time, guided by one of our expert staff.
If you wish, and are in a position to, you may choose one or two residential modules and study them on campus. For each of these, you will need to attend weekly face-to-face lectures (which are typically 1 – 2 hours long) and weekly hour-long seminars
