There are no set texts for this unit, although there will be links and material provided on the unit web site that you will be expected to view.
This unit should be enjoyable, but you do need to turn up to your labs each week, as this is where a lot of the instruction and support is.
But even if you come to every class, that's only 24 hours of engagement with the unit! Make sure you put in time outside of class too - doing assignments and playing around with the new ideas and concepts we'll be showing you.
We are very aware that health and travel concerns related to COVID-19 may affect your ability to attend the unit in person. If you are affected, please contact your tutor and let them know.
