We understand that 18 live sessions over 3 weeks are a huge commitment for you.  If you should find that you are unable to make a particular session then don’t worry, we will be recording the sessions and make them available for students to revisit.  In that way, if there is something you have missed then you can rewatch the session.

If you have any questions then please send an email to and we will be happy to help.
