Given that schools and colleges are closed, that this summer’s exams and assessments have been cancelled, and that some of you may be returning to study after a break from education, we have prepared some exercises for you to think about, should you wish to do so.
Completion of these exercises are completely voluntary, there’s no deadline, and the exercises will have no impact upon your offer of a place at Leeds Beckett.
If you do complete any of the below exercises and would like to send your thoughts/answers to the academic team at The School of Cultural Studies and Humanities, we’ll come back to you with some feedback and comments.
- Pre-course activity one: Antiage culture and apocalyptic demography
- Pre-course activity two: The Virtual Stages of Hate: What Motivates Cyber-Hate?
