The standard timetable involves around 10-12 hours of scheduled lectures and practical classes weekly, but there will be additional module-related seminars and personal tutorials scheduled throughout each semester and independent study is an integral component for each module.

Some of our students even go on to publish their independent research projects in academic peer-reviewed journals and present their findings at national and international research conferences.
You will also select modules from an extensive range of options during your third year giving you the flexibility to tailor your degree to your future career goals.
