Your timetable, courses, options and specialisations will vary depending on your chosen programme.
Your timetable will generally consist of a mixture of lectures and tutorials and, depending on your programme, lab classes, practical sessions and placements.
You will also be expected to study and read in your own time in between these classes.
The number of hours you will spend in lectures, tutorials or practicals varies. If you study some of the applied sciences, for example, the hours may be quite considerable, while in a social science course the formal teaching periods may be relatively few.
Normally, only a few hours will be spent each day in classes, and private study is the major element in the timetable.
These real examples of students' timetables show the breadth of study possible in our programmes. Please note, these examples are from undergraduate students who were studying at the University in the academic year 2014-15. We cannot guarantee that the same course options will be available in subsequent years.
