Extramural Year

You may choose to take a year working in industry between the second and the third years of your BEng degree programme. Please note that:

  1. this posting needs UCL approval in advance, and
  2. you will be required to write a comprehensive report on your work and what you learn during the year.

The report is assessed, and the marks are given some weighting in the overall classification of your degree.

Please note while you can study abroad for an academic year in the equivalent MEng four-year programme, this option is not available to you in our BEng programme.
