What is the average day like as a BI student?

You will spend your time both attending lectures, and working with other students in groups. Working with case studies is an important part of many of our programmes, and you will likely spend a lot of time with other students discussing courses and other academic topics.

You will also meet interesting lecturers who are the forefront of their academic fields.

Our classrooms vary in size. Core courses are usually held in larger lecture halls, while more specialised courses are held in smaller rooms.
