Flexible, individualised timetabling allows students to choose a wide range of subjects, including unique offerings such as cryptocurrencies and blockchain education in technology. Science, technology, engineering and maths education is conducted through the renowned GO-Lab programme, with integrated interdisciplinary project-based leaning.
