6. ACADEMIC EXPECTATIONS
6.1. KST short courses which take place via Zoom are interactive, so students are required to have a stable internet connection, webcam and microphone.
6.2. Recordings will be made available to group participants after the course finishes, and are for personal use only (they should not be shared or distributed).
6.3 Students are expected to attend all sessions and (note:) complete up to one hour per week of activities (on top of course attendance), as set by the tutor.   
6.3.1 The exception to this is Biblical languages which will require up to 3 hours (30 minutes per day) additional study per week.
6.4. No written assignments will be issued at the end of the course.
6.5. These courses are non-accredited and no certificates will be issued upon completion.

7. BULLYING, HARASSMENT & DISCRIMINATION POLICY
King’s School of Theology seeks to be an institution free of bullying, harassment and discrimination. In signing up to this course you agree to align with the following:
7.1. Behaviour   
7.1.1. Students should behave in a reasonable and responsible manner with consideration for other members of the KST community. They should refrain from any conduct likely to disrupt the academic, administrative or domestic functions of the programme.
7.2. Harassment
    7.2.1. Harassment is an unacceptable form of behaviour. KST is committed to protecting members, staff, tutors, mentors and any other person for whom we have special responsibility from any form of harassment which might inhibit them from their work or studies.
7.3. Harassment may be broadly understood to consist of unwarranted behaviour towards another person, so as to disrupt the work or reduce quality of life of that person, by such successive acts of bullying, verbally or physically abusing, creating or maintaining a hostile or offensive studying, working, or social environment for him or her. Harassment relating to another’s sex or race are among forms of harassment covered by this code.
7.4. If a participant is deemed unreasonably disruptive or unable to abide by these guidelines by the course tutor or moderator, a verbal warning will be given, and if behaviour does not change they will be exited from the zoom room.
