This is a 6 day course (30 SWS).

This course is ONLINE but we will not have the whole time sitting in  "live" web conference periods; there will be a combination of classroom web conference, individual study periods and group activities in breakout groups or offline. Thus, the time  10am till 4pm everyday should be kept free  but you  will not  be the whole time sitting in class conference.


Here are some of the controversial aspects of British life that will be looked at in the course:

Multiculturalism and British "tolerance"
Knife crime among youth in England
Scottish Independence?
"Social apartheid" in British universities
However, you will also be able to choose your own area of interest, as long as connected to the UK and modern British life, whether to do with business, politics, law or culture. You will also be presenting a British "question" presented in a film of your choice.

We will, of course, work on all the skills necessary for preparing for the HF.
