New distance Diploma course to run from October at Manchester University (UK)

KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology

Thanks to Barbara O'Neill both for this link and for keeping me up to date with all the progress on the development of the Diploma (when I was told to keep things very much under my hat!).  This is a really great piece of news.

Here's the introduction but there are full details, including the course curriculum and pricing, on the above page.

This two year programme provides an extension to the world-renowned Manchester Certificate in Egyptology, and is open to students who already have 120 UK university credits (or equivalent) in Egyptology or a related subject. It provides the opportunity for the more in-depth serious, academic study of Egyptology at The University of Manchester. The Diploma in Egyptology is taught by internationally recognised scholars and draws upon the important Egyptological collections of the University's Museum.

The Diploma in Egyptology is delivered entirely on-line via the Blackboard Virtual e-learning platform. It offers a tried and tested combination of written Learning Modules, specially recorded lectures, assessments and appraisals. Throughout the Diploma there is the opportunity for group discussion via online tutorial groups and discussion boards.

Course Begins: 01 October 2012 (Blackboard open September 2012)
Applications open: 30 March 2012
Deadline for applications: 30 June 2012
