Module Guidance

  • Request at least 9 module options per semester of study.

  • Each semester is comprised of 12 weeks of teaching.
  • A full courseload is 120 UEA credits per year (60 UEA credits per semester). This is usually equivalent to three modules per semester.
  • Non-Erasmus+ students must ensure that 2/3 of modules are in a single Faculty.
  • Japanese exchange students with IELTS 6.0 may request Language modules only.
  • Japanese exchange students with IELTS 6.5 and higher may select from all modules available to visiting students.
