Studying the Hispanic, Luso-Brazilian and Native American Worlds

This module will equip you with key study skills to enable you to perform independent critical and scholarly work in your subsequent years of study. Areas of skills addressed include class preparation and note taking, using the library and other subject-specific resources, as well as building up academic writing skills through a variety of assessments such as an individual log, an annotated bibliography and a critical review. These skills are implemented through the study of a range of key cultural concepts and artefacts taken from the Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian worlds.

    International students who require a Tier 4 visa should apply for our full-time courses (with the exception of modular enrolment certificates of higher education and graduate certificates), as these qualify for Tier 4 sponsorship. If you are living in the UK on a Tier 4 visa, you will not be eligible to enrol as a student on Birkbeck's part-time courses (with the exception of some modules).
