Hand writing notes on paper 'Materials only' courses

For internal University of Bristol staff and research students only, information and FAQs relating to our 'materials only' short courses.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was perfectly paced, the learning / examples / exercises were very well developed and were also fun.

I think the tutors did an amazing job of making the course engaging online - not an easy task!
