Such academic credits may contribute to completion of a formal academic award by the University.  All participants will attend all lectures (and seminars/tutorials where these are scheduled) and will have access to all learning materials for the module, including library and online resources.  Full participants will have unrestricted access to the on-campus study supports.The cost of this is €500.00
