The first 5 modules have 24 components that require 2-3 hours of study. The project should take 12-18 hours. The ‘standard’ course is over 5 weeks, with an allowance for 1 week of slippage. A ‘short’ version is over 2 weeks, with an allowance for 1 week of slippage.  Each module requires the participants to submit an assignment; this allows the tutor to monitor progress and understanding.

The course includes two pre-course modules. These are openly available ( and ) from the CGEMOD web site. In the two weeks before starting the ‘Practical CGE Modelling course’, participants fully registered for the course are required to complete two short assignments.

The materials are delivered using MOODLE, which provides an asynchronous forum in which participants engage with each other participants and the course instructor.

Questions and requests for advice submitted between 0800 and 1600 UTC will be responded to by the end of the next working (Monday to Friday) day, i.e., by 1600 UTC.
