Aims/Description: This unit is for use in the UoS student record of a student undertaking a period of study abroad of 1 academic year. Individual units are taken at the partner university for the year and are chosen to firstly; cover the core material of the equivalent year at the University of Sheffield (UoS), and secondly; to prepare the student for study in the following year of the student's degree programme at UoS. The arrangements and units to be taken abroad are subject to the approval of the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering Study Abroad Tutor. The marks obtained in the units taken will be converted to an equivalent UoS grade, the conversion being approved by the Board of Examiners of the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering.
