Self-study Index

[i] The following index allows you to navigate directly to subjects of interest to you from within the self-study module contents. You can use the links at the top of the page to navigate to different sections of the index, or you can scroll down the page to browse.

After following a link, you should use the back button in your browser to return to this page (NB. Depending on which browser you are using, you may need to press the back button twice to do this).

As the links are in the body of module pages, you are recommended to briefly familiarise yourself with the structure and conventions of the self-study pages before using this index page. Information on this can be found in the 'How to use this site' section.

Select the following link if you experience problems or for further information about the links on this page.

The pages of this site use headings which, when clicked, open onto the same page to reveal the contents. Links to these headings from this site map will automatically jump to and open the approprate heading. This occurs through two links which happen automatically in quick succession, and, depending on your browser, it may thus be necessary to press the back button in your browser twice to return to this page.

The links which open the headings depend on the use of cookies to pass information on which heading should be opened. If you have disabled cookies in your browser settings you will need to manually find and open the appropriate heading.
