What is the Industrial Experience Year?
All bachelors or full time taught postgraduate (masters) degrees in our School include the chance to spend a year in industry with our industrial experience option. The Industrial Experience (IE) year consists of one year spent working in industry in a role that relates directly to your field of study.
This option means, in the case of a bachelors, you take four years to complete your degree, with your third year spent working in a role directly related to your studies. A masters degree would be extended to two years, with your second year working in industry.
