It is primarily aimed at graduate students requiring credits as part of the MPAGS training scheme, but other interested students and staff are welcome to join on request.

A reasonable level of undergraduate programming experience is assumed.

For Nottingham students, the location will be George Green Library A13, and via Access Node broadcasts to various MPAGS and other institutions.

The course will be formatively assessed by the development of a working Python program related to your studies.
