Academic life

It is important to know that studying at university will feel very different to studying at college.

Adjusting to university life

The first thing to adjust to is the notion of becoming a truly independent learner - the responsibility for your learning will lie on your shoulders.

Teaching methods

The teaching methods employed at the University consist of a combination of lectures and tutorials, with laboratory work for science-based courses.

Learning and studying

You'll need to learn how to learn at degree level before you can truly take on the intellectual challenge of your course work.

Degree structure

We believe our flexible four-year degree will give you the best chance of success in your future career.

Final reassurance

You deserve to be here and are capable of succeeding.
