This short skills course consists of weekly tutorials discussing various physics problems, with an emphasis on solving unseen problems through discussion. Information on career possibilities will also be given.
The course is "study only" and no formal assessment will be made. All third year students are, however, required to attend. Note that students with attendance of less than 70% will be deemed to have FAILED the course and this will appear on your transcript. Regular attendance will also give you the advantage of an additional academic referee to add to your CV, something that you will find most useful in the next few years!
