Test 1 Preparation Courses for Students

80% of the students who take our courses are mature students who have not done any formal study for several years. Many of the courses at the estley !usiness School re"uire a #ood knowled#e of various skills. $f you feel you need some e%tra preparation &efore your course' look &elow and see if any of our preparation courses suit your needs. (ll courses take place in (u#ust and for enrolled students' all the courses listed &elow are free. Course 1 ST(T$ST$CS ( #roundin# in statistics is a must for any prospective &usiness student. This is a one week course )Mon * +ri, consistin# of 1 lecture every ni#ht. The tutor will ensure that &y the end of the course' you will have had a thorou#h introduction to all the statistical skills that you will need to start your course at estley !usiness School. -ach lecture runs from .pm to /pm. Course 0 ESSAY WRITINGThis is a self*study pack containin# #uidance' practice and tests. (t the end of the course )it should take a&out 10 hours of self* study, you will receive a 1 hour tutorial with the essay writin# tutor who will #o over your work with you. Course 1 BASIC MATHSThis is a one*off lecture of 1 hours aimed at reviewin# all the &asic maths that you will va#uely remem&er from school2 This course is run on a 3first come' first served4 &asis and there are only 00 places )every Monday in (u#ust from 5.65pm * 8.65pm, so don7t &e late.

From a current base of 5 billion,the United Nations predicts that the global population may stabilise in the twentyfirst century between 8 and 1 billion, with more than !" per cent of the pro#ectedincrease ta$ing place in the world%s developing nations. &he associated activities to support that growth, particularly to produce the re'uired energy and food, will cause further increases in greenhouse gas emissions. &he challenge, therefore, is to attain a sustainable balance between population, economic growth and the environment.&he ma#or greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are carbondio(ide )*+,-, methane and nitrous o(ide. *hlorofluorocarbons )*F*s- are the only ma#or contributor to the greenhouse effect that does not occur naturally, coming from such sources as refrigeration,

plastics and manufacture. *oal%s total contribution to greenhouse gas emissions is thought to be about 18 per cent, with about half of this coming from electricity generation.&he worldwide coal industry allocates e(tensive resources to researching and developing new technologies and ways of capturing greenhouse gases. .fficiencies are li$ely to be improved dramatically, and hence *+ , emissions reduced, through combustion and gasification techni'ues which are now at pilot and demonstration stages. *lean coal is another avenue for improving fuel conversion efficiency. /nvestigations are under way into superclean coal )05 per cent ash- and ultraclean coal )less than 1 per cent ash-. 1uperclean coal has the potential to enhance the combustion efficiency of conventional pulverised fuel power plants. Ultraclean coal will enable coal to be used in advanced power systems such as coalfired gas turbines which, when operated in combined cycle, have the potential to achieve much greater efficiencies. 2efendants of mining point out that, environmentally, coal mining has two important factors in its favour. /t ma$es only temporary use of the land and produces no to(ic chemical wastes. 3y carefully preplanning pro#ects, implementing pollution control measures, monitoring the effects of mining and rehabilitating mined areas, the coal industry minimises the impact on the neighbouring community, the immediate environment and longterm land capability. 2ust levels are controlled by spraying roads and stoc$piles, and water pollution is controlled by carefully separating clean water runoff from runoff which contains sediments or salt from mine wor$ings. &he latter is treated and reused for dust suppression. Noise is controlled by modifying e'uipment and by using insulation and sound enclosures around machinery.

1ince mining activities represent only a temporary use of the land, e(tensive rehabilitation measures are adopted to ensure that land capability after mining meets agreed and appropriate standards which, in some cases, are superior to the land%s premining condition. 4here the mining is underground, the surface area can be simultaneously used for forests, cattle gra5ing and crop raising, or even reservoirs and urban development, with little or no disruption to the e(isting land use. /n all cases, mining is sub#ect to stringent controls and approvals processes.
