Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

When selecting modules from an option range, please ensure that you satisfy the rule requirements to take that module i.e. having taken a pre-requisite module. You can only choose 20 credits worth of PPL modules per year. You can only choose 20 credits worth of level 4 modules in Year 2.
