Whether you study Humanities, Sciences or Social Sciences, you'll find a wide variety of exciting modules and gold-standard teaching open to you at UEA. 

Module Information

You must request at least 9 module options per semester of study. This is more than you will take in a semester, but we ask for extra choices in case some of your choices are full or unavailable.

All visiting students are required to be enrolled in a full courseload (120 UCU per year or 60 UCU per semester). This is usually equivalent to three modules per semester.

Erasmus students must select the majority of their modules within the subject area to which they have been nominated. Non-Erasmus+ students must ensure that 2/3 of modules are in a single subject area.

For information on grading, UEA credits and how they relate to ECTS (The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), visit our ECTS webpage. 

Undergraduate modules come in three levels: Level 4 (first year), Level 5, and Level 6 (final year). Please ensure you are choosing modules at an appropriate level.

Language Requirements

 

Modules can be selected in line with your English score. Some Schools accept students with a lower English score on all module levels whilst some only accept students with a higher English score.
