Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring and review of modules. Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. 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.

Where this is the case, you will be asked to make alternative module choices and you will be supported during this process.

Modules in this range are core, which means they have to be passed and are not eligible for compensation.
