How many hours of lectures to students have per week?
Roughly around 15-20 hours of lectures per week, 2-3 hours of tutorials and 2 hours of lab sessions. As the years go on, students are expected to complete more independent study and contact time tends to reduce.
Do students have access to recorded lectures online?
The majority of lectures are now recorded and the recordings are posted online for students to access in their own time (via Canvas). Recordings may not be available if technical issues arise or from some external visitors.
Can I switch between degree programmes?
Yes the degree programmes are interchangeable, you will need to fill out a form once you decide. There are internal hurdles for the MEng degree – you must attain 55% in order to proceed to the MEng degree.
Students require 55% in order to be eligible for the year in industry, and 60% for the year abroad.
What is the size of the cohort?
Maximum of 180 students per year.
When will I have exams?
The exam periods are:
- January: Two weeks at the end of Semester 1
- May – June: Three weeks at the end of Semester 2
What is the application process for Year Abroad?
Applications for the year abroad open at the start of the Year 2, so we normally ask students to start thinking about where they want to go from the end of Year 1. You will have to make an internal application, where you are able to choose 5 institutions ranked in preference. Students normally get one of their five choices, and we try to place as many students with their first or second choice, however it is dependent on the number of students applying.
