Learning and teaching methods
Your study involves 16 hours of lectures, tutorials and practical sessions each week. You also need to spend an extra four hours per week, per module, on coursework, general reading and other preparation. We strongly recommend you take advantage of a sandwich year working in industry. The skills you will gain can boost your employability and your grades, plus it could lead to employment opportunities with your placement company.
