  1. The Reading List is organised as follows:

    • A key background reading section of books/articles/online resources that will provide a foundation for weekly topics. for example, a number will have a chapter on academic reading etc. You won't necessarily read all. 
    • For each unit, there is a core reading section and further reading. The latter provides additional references should you wish to read in more depth, e.g. for an assignment. There may also be a materials/resources section related to moodle tasks for the course

     

    • Occasionally you may see a book that is unavailable online, but may be of interest to look out for, for further reading.
