Can anyone currently doing this course please shed some light on it for me. On the website itself it states 4 year course but when looking at course details, it shows that the placement year extends the course to 5 years which is confusing me.

I think the work placement extends the degree by a year.

From the website:

"You can apply to spend 9 to 12 months on an optional work placement between Stages 3 and 4. You can apply to spend your placement year with any organisation and will receive University support to do so. It will extend your degree by a year and is subject to availability. Find out more on about Work Placements."

The placement is optional. If you find a placement it adds a year to your total course duration. If you don't then you complete in 4 years.

It's common at many universities.

I know it's common,, it's just that when I was looking into universities I noticed Manchester university had an amazing 4 year Meng chem eng with year in industry and did that through distance learning courses (unfortunately was rejected). Just Had some hopes since Newcastle uni's site wasn't too clear 🤗😅

Manchester's course is unusual. The distance learning aspect adds a fair amount to the placement workload. And some people like that, ... and some don't.

Hi, sorry this might be quite late but H815 is a 4 year course. The website is unfortunately misleading. But I did my 3rd year with distance learning modules and an industrial design project while simultaneously completing a full-time year in industry and now I'm about to completely my final year (stage 4).
