It is very good cause you can make plans and wotk during the time you want and more efficiently
You can work from home if something comes up and you cannot make it in which makes it flexibke
Being a software developer, I was allowed to work on my laptop from home when tube strikes were on, or so long as I notified the manager so he knows I'm working that day. We communicated on Skype and kept a Google sheets shared document to update work to do lists and comments.
You can work from home but hardly any of the IT works well and many essential systems require tons of paperwork to access. The VLE etc work well from home as one would expect.
The university has exceptional internet connection, so even with Teamviewer, working from home is doable.
Depending on the supervisor you get. Some are very open to the idea as long as you show results - some do not allow at all.
