    Features highlight (pdf format)

    Course materials in PDF format (study units for part-time students, lecture notes for full-time students, and so on) are provided in iBookcase. These files can be viewed via Adobe Acrobat Reader on your tablet (see ‘other useful learning tools’ for the download procedure).
