Some courses may also be run in conjunction with a physical evening class held at the EES London Office. Therefore material will be made available throughout the duration of that course (usually between six and ten weeks). All the digitized material used in physical classes will also be made available via the online platform including presentations, reading lists, articles and archive material.
