Seminars and workshops 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. Timetabled learning may fall between 9am and 9pm depending on your courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

Lectures usually are attended by larger groups and seminars/tutorials by smaller groups. This can vary more widely for modules that are shared between degrees. Apprentices also take part in shared /collaborative modules with students attending the built environment courses, providing a perfect opportunity to develop skills through group work. These classes are taken with workshops and lab sessions working in smaller groups of students.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you are also expected to dedicate time to self-study.                                                                                                                                  This may involve further reading and research, preparing coursework and presentations, and preparing for tests and exams. Our facilities are designed to support you in these activities.

In addition, during the week you can also:

  • Attend guest lectures from industry experts
  • Take part in employability and enterprise workshops
  • Join student societies.
