12 CHOOSING YOUR STUDY PROGRAMME This section is designed to help with your initial subject choices, which you will add as part of your online application. All subject choices, and your overall study programme, will be discussed with a member of academic staff at interview. Changes can be made at that point and again at our Welcome Day. Step 1: Choosing the Right Type of Study for You Matching your studies to your individual learning style, in addition to your interests and aspirations, is vital for success.
