Links to course webpages

These links are to standard summary webpages for each course, which show all course deadlines and any handouts for the current year only. There are also links to lecturers\' own webpages for the course, where they exist. Such webpages may contain links to a range of material, such as examples, demonstrations, background reading and other material which is not distributed as handouts.

Synopses for all courses (including a list of prerequisites, learning outcomes and assessment details) are available individually on the course web pages listed below, or collectively for each year of study from the following links:

All handouts, for all courses and years, but not the subsidiary material, can be found here, and for the current term in the filing cabinets outside the Pippard Lecture Theatre. Hardcopies of all handouts can also be obtained directly from the Teaching Office.
