In the second year, there are 17 lecture courses, and a computational project.
Students decide how many courses to take: unusually (maybe uniquely) there is no fixed number for examination purposes. Students generally study more courses than they prepare for examination, to give themselves a good grounding for the third year.
At the end of the year, there are four three-hour examinations, and reports are submitted for the computational projects course.
