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.

Students will take 120 credits across the year, 60 credits in Semester 1 and 60 credits in Semester 2. Students wishing to enrol on the 60-credit Film and Television Studies Semester Abroad module AMAM5037B in the Spring term must first seek approval from the Study Abroad Office and the Internationalisation Director.
