  • 1-to-1 tutorials

Further details to be confirmed.

Seminars enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups. You will also be able to meet your personal tutor. Scheduled learning activities may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Independent learning

University study requires students to work more independently than they may have been used to in school. Students in Engineering and Science are expected to develop their independence progressively throughout their degree. At foundation level and in year 1 of the degree, students are given more support by their Module leaders and personal tutors than in subsequent years. In years 2 and 3 students are expected to demonstrate increasing willingness and ability to work independently to build upon material delivered in lectures and laboratories. This means independent reading to broaden and deepen knowledge and time spent outside the classroom to prepare coursework. Ultimately, it is expected that the mark of a Greenwich graduate is the ability to think and work independently, analytically and creatively to solve problems.

Overall workload

If you are studying full-time, you should expect the workload to be similar to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of courses you are studying.

Each module you study towards this degree is worth 15 or 30 credits. These represent around 150 or 300 study hours respectively. If you receive 100 contact hours for a 30-credit module, you should expect to commit 200 hours to independent study to complete it successfully.
