The purpose of this handbook is to outline the teaching and other arrangements for undergraduates studying Materials Science and provide you with important information and advice on the various requirements of the course. It is a supplement to the Examination Regulations which, should there be a conflict in information, always take precedence. The handbook briefly describes the structure of lectures, practicals, tutorials and examinations, together with library, computing, career guidance, safety, counselling and other support facilities.
You should read the handbook which applies to you in your stage of your course**.
**The 1st Year Prelims course is treated as a separate course to the Part I and Part II of the Final Honours courses. This means that a student who arrived in 2020 was under the regulations of the 2020 handbook for year one (Prelims) and then under the regulation of the 2021 handbook for the subsequent two years 2021&2022 (Part I) but should refer to the more detailed 2023 Part II handbook provided at the Part II induction course.
