Course Schedule for CM50175
Research Project Preparation   2006

Main Course Page

Lectures this year are in WH1LT (which is down by the wessex house stairs on ground level) at 11:15 am on Tuesdays.

Seminar participation on 3, 10 & 17 March  is mandatory and for credit.  None of the other lectures or seminars are mandatory; they're just recommended.

The April lecture is totally optional. It is provided  to answer last minute questions about how to write the introductory chapter (that is, get full marks for the part of your paper I will be marking) and possibly to help students find partners for proof-reading.

Notice that this is all subject to change at the moment, final scheudling will be determined with your DoS over the next few weeks.
