Course modules

All of our undergraduate degree courses are run on a modular system, which offers flexibility and means you benefit from being able to follow your interest in your choice of modules.

You will be assigned a supervisor upon starting your degree, who will be able to advise you on your choice of modules. Modules are taught in a three-hour block format. The first two hours deliver the core theoretical and technical concepts; these are then applied in the remaining hour which is spent in a classroom.
