Students on our MEng and MComp programmes can follow a variety of curricula in their third and fourth years, offering a number of different experiences and opportunities.
Each programme will offer slightly different challenges yet students graduating from them will have achieved the same level of learning outcomes and studied the same extensive core curriculum. However, they will have had different opportunities for specialisation in both practical and theoretical research.
To be eligible for the one year placement our students are required to meet specified progression criteria at the end of their first, second and third years where appropriate. We require that they reach a standard of 58% averaged across all their studies, and that they pass all their studies at the first time of asking. Students achieving at this level at the end of the second year should be aspiring towards a minimum of an upper second class degree on graduation. We would anticipate that the majority of our placement students would achieve at a significantly higher level than this.
