The tutorial sessions will be conducted similarly to a university-style tutorial where the student will present their work to the tutor for feedback and suggestions. However unlike a university system where a typical tutorial session is 20-30min, having an hour will allow opportunities for questions and open discussions to help develop, strengthen and curate existing work or work from scratch to form a strong intellectual clarity and logic behind the work.
