Our researchers work in four research groups within the department. You’ll have contact with many of these specialists throughout your course – all of our teaching staff are active in research. One of our team will also supervise your research project.
Classes are a mixture of formats, including lectures and seminars. You’ll have around 250 hours of taught contact time, 400 hours of project work and 1000 hours of independent study. We’ll assess your work through a combination of coursework (around 60% of your final mark) and exams (around 40%).
As well as the latest insights from the research happening at King’s, you’ll also learn about developments within the professional world. We work closely with industry and many of our lecturers have experience in both the professional and academic worlds.
