If you pursue a four-year course you’ll complete a four-week placement, alternatively for a five-year course you’ll do 30-weeks in industry. The placement is a key feature in developing your abilities and understanding of the workplace. It also offers you a platform for entering a wide variety of professions after graduation.
This course is a solid preparation for any career where clear communication is essential. The emphasis of the final year will be on work-based learning and the acquisition of advanced research skills, making you even more employable once you've graduated from this course.
