How I'll learn

You will study using a range of techniques including group work, independent study, research, practical activities and homework. 

We expect our students to be fully committed to their studies and attend all timetabled lessons, talks, tutorials and workshops. In addition, students can expect to attend trips and visits according to the needs of the individual subjects. You will also have a weekly tutorial. There are many enrichment opportunities.
