IMEL Teaching Format for the 2021 Programme

9 Dec 2020 - 16:15

Owing to the ongoing impact of the Covid19 virus and future uncertainty as to its impact in the first half of 2021, the recently released formal University policy for postgraduate teaching in 2021 and the nature/number/composition of the students enrolled in our courses (comprising of both local and foreign students) we regret to advise that the block-teaching weeks for the Principles of Environmental Law Course (PBL5640F/PBL4640F) and the Land-Use Planning Law Course (PBL5641F/PBL4641F) will not be offered in face-to-face format next year and the presentation of the courses will accordingly be restructured into an online teaching format similar in approach to that used in the second semester of 2020. The full details of this format will be conveyed to students registered for these courses in February next year – but it will not require your physical presence on campus. We do hope the situation changes in the first half of next year so that we may be able to offer the block-teaching weeks for the second semester courses on the programme (specifically Pollution Law, Natural Resources Law and International Environmental Law) in the usual face-to-face format – but this decision will be informed by University and Faculty Policy. Should circumstances change – you will be the first to be notified.
