Similarly, those attending a level 5 course, such as Advanced SEM, are expected to have completed an applied SEM course (level 4) or hold an equivalent level of competence in SEM as someone who has completed such a level 4 course. Without the pre-requisite background, you are likely to get little value from the course and could adversely affect the experience of others in the course You should check the pre-requisites of your desired course in the course outline page.
