Is the course full-time and what are the contact hours?
Yes, the course is full time and students must be available to attend all programme related activities throughout the academic year. Contact hours vary throughout the year and between Years 1 -4 of the course. However, students can count on having at least 4 to 5 hours a day of tutorials, lectures, placement on most days during the semester in Years 1-3. In addition to this, students must allocate a significant amount of time for independent study. Most lectures and placements are scheduled between 9am and 5pm and we endeavour to give students information about the timetable in advance of each semester. Despite the heavy time commitment to the course, many students engage in a small amount of part-time work.
