Flexible ways to study
We offer a variety of options for when, where and how programmes can be studied, so that you can choose the right combination for you.
- Study at WEDC
This form of study we refer to as 'face-to-face learning' or 'Loughborough-based'. The programmes include group lectures and seminars that take place in dedicated rooms in the School of Civil and Building Engineering at Loughborough University in the UK.
