How you learn

All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.

Networking opportunities Beyond the course, you have access to a wide range of developmental and professional events in the department and the wider university as well as volunteering and employment agencies. In addition, you're also supported to find work experience and are well supported by a comprehensive suite of career management services including interview training and networking opportunities.

Applied learning
