Provisional overview of Food Security modules

The information below outlines the provisional dates of taught modules for the academic year 2020/2021. The HR909 Project/Placement module will run from spring until the end of August. Attendance of all timetabled sessions for taught modules is compulsory. After enrolment, your personalised timetable will be available to you through Tabula, which links with the MyWarwick app.

The MSc programmes are full-time courses and any "free" time is intended for working on assessments, personal study and research.
