Courses generally involve a formal structure of lectures, seminars, lab work (if relevant), projects and a dissertation. We emphasise projects and assignments that are relevant to work, particularly if you’re associated with an industrial or commercial partner. And clinical practice placements are important in many of our health-related courses.
