Course Introduction

This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Civil Engineering but you don’t have the standard entry requirements.

First we prepare you for your degree during your Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject.

Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree, which is a three-year course. You also have the option of adding a year-long placement working in the industry. Your degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators.

As well as completing numerous practical projects, you’ll benefit from visits from top professionals who’ll offer you advice – and work opportunities.

Our Docklands campus is ideally placed for studying iconic projects in the capital such as the Tate Modern Phase 2 Extension, the Canary Wharf Crossrail station and the reconfiguration of the Olympic Stadium.
