As with most of our current affairs courses, an open mind and a willingness to listen to and think about views with which you do not always agree are more important than specific levels of skills.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Methods may include: short presentation (with aids); group discussion (with whiteboard); questions and answers; small group discussions; some one-to-one discussion.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

No additional costs; please bring pen and paper for any optional note taking.
